We went here last year at this time. It was great for the kids. You can feed the exotic creatures and hod the baby alligator. There are monkies and birds and crocs. The snake show was great too. This s something that is truly unique. It isn't like an American Zoo, in that it is much smaller and a little unkempt. it also cost a little more. Lastly, it is very hot.

The crocodile show is really interesting but very short over in almost 15 min
The snake show was the most interesting part and intriguing to watch felt very unsafe thou and a few of the snakes wanted to escape don sit first row if your faint hearted ,
If this was all their was to it I would rate the place higher after all it is Thailand and everything is a bit sketchy , what was really upsetting to me and my girlfriend was the horrible conditions the animals were kept under especially the monkeys their eyes were lifeless and all of them were seemingly upset shaking their Cages , I don't blame then when we were there a group of Thai tourists were amusing themselves by throwing water at one of the monkeys , rattling his cage and hitting him with their waterbottle , when I told them to stop agitating the monkey they all looked at me like I was insane , theese animals are living in horrible conditions and I don't think anyone should be supporting this by paying money to see their show , seek out a snake show in Bangkok instead and spare theese animals this horrendous treatment

Here you can find monkeys, a very forward tethered bird, rabbits, many large snakes and crocs. They are all in grungy cement and chain link enclosures, and many don't have good protection from the sun or adequate water. We didn't stay for the crocodile show though the snake show is one of the more impressive I've seen. That said, the snake handler managed to nearly get venom in his eye when a cobra spit at him. Not terribly professional I suppose.

Seems that prices went up in the new year,...now at 750Baht...50% increase !!

What is very sad however is the overall condition of the place. Clearly, does not, and would not meet EU standards. The crocs were in too small enclosures, with what appeared to be verty stagnant water (although, perhaps they like this!!) however, it did appear that there were too many per pen.

As to the monkeys, they did appear to be distressed, and no visible food or water for them. When getting close, they seemed wail in distress, a little more than frightned.

The snakes didn't appear to be any better off,...indeed one employee seemed to trying to get them to respond by continually pestering one of the snakes for visitor enjoyment !

There is very little information on any of the creatures in the enclosures, and in speaking with one of the keepers, it was very difficult to gain any useful information.

We arrived just prior to a crocodile show, clearly the handlers (and the chosen crocs) were well versed in their routine. As to placing 2x 100baht notes in the mouths of the crocs then retrieving them,....one of these days, an accident will happen and no doubt the croc will come off worse for it.

When sitting on the concrete seats for the show we were being eaten alive by the mosquitos !!

Overall, not a good experience, the owners need to smarten up their act here !!

My husband absolutely loved this trip. It's very cheap but a little way out - best to hire a car to go here.
There's lots of opportunities to touch and hold the snakes. The crocs are feisty which makes for a good show and you can have your pic taken with them. Fairly good conditions that theyre kept in.
