THIS IS A GOOD PLACE but not worth the price to get in . adults should be free with the cost of each child. not a big enough place for the price expected to pay.

There was a kangaroo at the zoo that day. I asked a staff person where the kangaroo lived. She said at a separate location warehouse. Cement floor... More

Imagine kids holding a friendly tarantula, petting an articulated burmese python, and stroking a baby cayman...this is a big hit with the kids. The shows featuring the animals are scheduled throughout the day. There's a good variety of insects, reptiles, animals,... More

We enjoyed searching for the animals in each of the installations, and got to see a monitor chase and eat giant cockroaches for lunch! When they are "open", shows featuring the animals are scheduled throughout the day.

I take my Cub Scouts here for an outing. And we have brought their travelling road show into our meetings. Knowledgeable staff who interact well with the kids. Great hands on activity with a variety of unique animals. Highly recommended!
