At first, we weren't sure what we would be seeing here (besides Aligators). We honestly thought we would be in and out...four hours later, lol, we were exhausted. My wife and I had so much fun talking with the staff, holding alligators, snakes, feeding Tilapia and huge Tortoises, and yes...even sitting on an 8' long alligator, holding its powerful head up. For a complete review, watch us on the online streaming show 'Love4Travel' Season 1 - Episode 2 on FastTVNetwork.com

This is such a wonderful place to visit. I have been coming here for over 20 years and each time there is something new. The animals are well cared for and very happy. There is so much to do here and everyone is so nice and friendly and they have so much information to share. I always learn something new when I visit.

I think is embarrassing this place is advertised everywhere as a spot to visit. Save your time and your sanity. You can judge from the moment you park this is not a good place to visit once inside is even worse. Animals cramped In small enclosures. The smell is beyond terrible. It is hard to see the animals because the glass is so dirty. A lot of the information about the animals is incorrect. I feel sorry for the animals. I think it was a very good concept that has not been well maintained. I can only hope someone can help them and invest in this place that could be great Good part you get to hold a young alligator and there is a really brave young lady holding a snake for you to hold it. She was definitely the highlight of the visit.

This place is SO COOL. There are hundreds of gators, big and small, chilling in the sun. You 100% need to buy a bucket (or two) of gator food and watch them frantically swim and chomp it up! Not only gators, but turtles, lizards, birds, and more! Totally worth the visit, highly recommend!

This was our second trip to see the gators. We had a great time again and now our youngest will actually be able to remember. We love seeing all of the tortoises, gators, and other animals. We paid for food to feed the gators and were able to feed some fish and some tortoises. It does look like they have rescued several large reptiles since we were there last and still need some larger exhibit areas for those, like the monitors and dragons, but I believe those animals are still in a better situation then they would be otherwise. This is a great educational experience for the kids and the staff really have a love for animals.
