My sons, 13 and 12, and I visited the San Angelo Nature Center and absolutely loved it! It was easy to get to, the admission fees are very reasonable $3.00 for 13 and up, $2 for 4-12 year olds. We got to see an excellent variety of animals, insects and reptiles. Many of them were awake and active. The highlights for us were the alligator, 15 foot python, the Spotted Ground Squirrel and bobcats. We spent a good deal of time looking at each habitat and then reading the detail. We had brought our Texas Mammals book and that helped as we enjoyed looking at the animals and my sons worked on their Mammal Study Merit Badge. We were very amused with the Spotted Brown Squirrels in particular, we made a donation to support them and got to name them, my youngest son was excited as was I! We decided on naming the male, "Rascal" and we named the female "Belle". Rascal would climb all over the top of the cage and literally "run" around on the lid. Everyone enjoyed watching his show! They have an over 40 snake varieties. The tarantulas, hissing cockroaches and alligator were very interesting too. SANC is a definite "must see"!
