Very knowledgeable staff gave us so much of their time to learn all about Rattlers, other snakes, tarantulas, and gila monsters. Here's the only drawback. Our daughter so wanted to take one home. Nope.nope.nope. she did get to hold one, tho.

My mom and I stopped by on our way to our hotel in the mountains since we had a little time to kill and we knew it was going to be small but we had a great time and it was interesting to see all those critters. The tarantulas for sure are my least favorite but still cool to look

Cool exhibits but nothing too exciting. $5 admission per adult. Lots of snakes and spiders and such in tanks.

We've been stopping by the rattlesnake shop for years. It is much cleaner than I've ever seen it. New displays, new animals, cleaner, it's worth a stop if you're even mildly interested in animals.

The boys (grown men) in our group really liked this place and ended up buying several unique items including some very unusual plants and a fully mounted snake skeleton in a display case.
