Visited in late October 2012.
Lots of interesting reptiles, although we were late in the season.
The snake show was fun. Saw some animals being fed.

The staff was very friendly. Would recommend.

We took our daughter here 20 years ago and took our 6 year old grandson this summer (2012). Still real impressive, friendly, and informative. They had tortoises older than me. That's old!!

It is fun to look at the animals we especially enjoyed the turtles and seeing the eagles who where hurt in the wild taken care of. I was not sure abt visiting it again because of the snakes. But the fact that they are behind glass helps.
