Do not come here. The animals are severely mistreated, the turtles are in small little pools and obviously distressed when abruptly picked up for photos. The animals just look sad... what a horrible life they have.

Between bats chained to trees, snakes with their mouths taped shut, and people dropping turtles, I found this very hard to watch. If you are a fan of nature or have any iota of respect for animals, you will not go to this 'zoo.' This...More

Yes, it's been reported many times. Unfortunately, disgusted western tourists are such a small percentage of visitors... So many other tourists flock there that it keeps the place going.
