About
Daily 12-5 thru Columbus Day week, then wkends 12-5 thru November, (weather permitting). A unique "mini-zoo", celebrating our 54th year!! Everyone will enjoy this compact and easy-to-do animal experience. Slow down, don't move too fast, or you'll miss some of our exhibits, like our exciting private collection of live reptiles including rattlers, Retic Python, 60-lb turtle, and many others. Visitors can purchase our special treats for the bear, tortoises, lemurs, lizards, and monkeys (toss it to them and watch them catch it in midair!) and bottles for our pot-belly pig and goats. You might even be lucky enough to catch our sloths AWAKE! All in all, a fun place to visit when you don't want to spend the time it takes to visit a "regular" zoo! NO outside food or drink (except water), and don't forget the camera (no flash, please). Pay at the entrance, and we will distance you at the door! Adults, $12, kids 2-11, $8, and under 2 is free.

Overall a very positive experience...however, there were two issues of concern. 1. When you enter, there is a Savannah Monitor and its description card indicates its primary diet is cat food and eggs. This is concerning as their staple diet should be insects such as roaches. Feeding them fatty foods such as cat food may lead to fatty liver disease and possible death. 2. The enclosure sizes of the Columbian Rainbow Boa and Black Rat Snake are too small. Snakes, as a general rule, should be able to spread out along two sides of their enclosure. Rat Snakes are particularly active and like to explore. The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable; do not hesitate to visit...you will be glad you did. It's an enjoyable day out.

Thanks for your review. Yes, we also feed our Monitor insects, and have an aquarium behind his enclosure where we raise giant roaches for him and the Bufo toads inside the reptile room. (We need to change that informational sign!) We are currently in the process of a new design for the snake enclosures which will give them several large exhibits designated by environments ( forest, desert, etc.), and we hope to begin on this project at the end of our 2020 season in late fall. Thanks for the suggestions, and we're glad you enjoyed your visit overall. 😊

This is a very small facility, and will take about 45 minutes to an hour to go through. With “snake” in the name, I thought this would mostly be a few snakes and reptiles. But, they have cobras, pythons, rattlesnakes, several turtles—including a gigantic snapping turtle, inside the building. But there are also monkeys, goats, and pigs that the kids can feed. Plus wallabies, alligators, a couple of cats, a few birds, and a black bear ("Blackberry Pearl") that the kids can also feed. It was one of the most fun things to do in this area, so I’m glad we stopped here!

Fun for the whole family. I brought up the whole family 8 to 80+ wheel chair and all. They all enjoyed it . Family owned businesses are the back bone of our country. I’m from Bristol ct. and it’s not the biggest city , but it’s not small . I search for local family business. I highly recommend stopping by and feed the monkeys, take time and spend time here. You won’t be disappointed

Good for the little ones. You can touch some of the animals which is nice. Nice place overall. Lots of variety of reptiles and farm animals.It is overpriced for what it is. It takes 30/45 min to get through it for 12 for adults and 8 for kids. If you want to feed which basically everyone does it’s extra. spending $50 for a family of 4 for 30 min is too much. Would be 5 stars if it were half the price.

Staff clearly love these animals, everything is very clean and new looking. We had a great time. Save your food for the monkeys at the very end, I think most visitors probably run out of food by the end. They looked a little disappointed when we had little to offer 😆, so guys🙊, we'll get ya next time!! Thanks for making our experience so enjoyable especially under the circumstances 😷

Went here with my husband and 5 year old we really enjoyed seeing the animals and feeding them. It was a nice quick little walk through. We went In may which I guess is off season so they were only open on weekends. I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get to bottle feed the goats or pigs which was advertised online and on their flyer but we were able to feed multiple animals with a food tray which I thought $8 was a little pricey for 4 little cups of food. We still enjoyed our visit and loved how inter actable it was being able to feed the lizards, goats, monkeys, and bear. Great place for families with young children to go to.

This is a fun experience for kids. They have unique animals like snakes and alligators and feeding them is a lot of fun. I do wonder how healthy it is for the animals to be constantly fed like this though.

You can be in and out in a half hour though so the price is a bit much for the amount of time.

Worth a visit though if you have kids and are in the area.

We're so glad you enjoyed your visit with the kids. No worries about the animals eating all day. The animals we allow people to feed enjoy snacking all day as a lifestyle, and they stop eating when they are full. They're all in excellent health! We hope you come back and visit us again. 😊

We stopped by this hidden gem while vacationing in the Poconos. The family that runs the exhibit really cares about the animals. You can feed almost all of them, including a pair of 50 year old monkeys and a bear! Our daughter loved feeding the goats and pigs by hand. Easily one of our favorite experiences of the trip.

My kids loved it. Here you can throw food to catching monkeys, feed a bear through a funnel, and bottle feed pigs and goats. You can also pet decent sized turtles. It's a different type of zoo, but more fun because it's pretty up close and personal. And it's not too expensive.

Sure it's a small building plus enclosures. Sure you'll spend maybe an hour there. But what fun! Our kid enjoyed and was interactive at seeing the monkeys, snakes, raccoons, goats, and other animals, asking questions about them. You can buy food and bottles to feed them. This was a stop picked at random and we're glad we did so. Recommended.
