The Luray Zoo was worth the $10 admission. It is small but has a large collection of snakes that you can learn more about during the snake demo at 3:30 daily in the summer. The owner gave the demo and talked a lot about snakes while displaying a few specimens including a cobra and rattlesnake. He also let the kids hold a rat snake if they wished. The staff is attentive and knowledgable. Plan to be there for the gator feeding at 2 and snake show at 3:30. We left for lunch and came back with no problem.
