Poorly maintained, very small zoo. Moor birds and reptiles than animals. Definitely not worth admission cost. We did enjoy feeding the goats as the only real positive.

Love snakes? This place is for you. There are two rooms devoted to snakes and reptiles. Venomous and non-venomous. I now understand what a diamond head on a snake looks like and won’t ever forget it. There are two large gators in a enclosure that’s...More

I can't tell anybody to not support the zoo, after all, it is a rescue zoo. However, the conditions for the animals are sub-par. The tiger looks terribly sad in particular. The worst part about the zoo was one of the staff, or maybe he...More

I was looking forward to visiting this zoo. However, as soon as we paid and walked through the door, we noticed teenagers that were heavily intoxicated, it was dirty, it looked un-kept. Very disappointing! You can see the entire rescue in about 30 mins. I...More

Our second visit. This time we brought friends. Very inexpensive. Our friend has some trouble walking so this place is ideal. Small enough to see the whole place easily and no steep hills. There are so many unique reptiles and animals here. A must see....More

Visited this place to see the alligator snapping turtle. From the outside it looks a little run down but do not let that put you off. It is after all a rescue zoo and you have to keep this in mind when visiting. Great selection...More

This is a nice place to go however, the animals in the park like to stick their heads in your windows. It is a nice clean park except for those guests who enjoying throwing their used feed buckets out the window of their cars. They...More

Very nice zoo where the animals seem to be cared for and loved. I would agree with other reviewers that the crocodile and alligator enclosures were a little sad, but the other reptile tanks were adequate. Our son really loved the monkeys, the tiger and...More
