Plenty of animals from the surrounding and a nice and talkative guide for us to get a better insight in what sort of fauna surrounds us. The show is a must as Chloe really can pass her enthusiasm and love for these special creatures

The owner showed us around inbetween going out to pick up snakes that had strayed where they shouldn't!! He was funny and fascinating and his knowledge was first class. He has many snakes and lizards to see and even a crocodile.

I’m a local and I take my family and friends here a lot. Friendly knowledgeable staff. Being able to handle the python and lizards during the live shows is great. The staff give very interesting and informative talks. A must-see place in Alice Springs!

I felt so sorry for the crocodile. His enclosure is very, very plain and I suspect no where near big enough. I reckon he must be the most bored, frustrated crocodile in all the NT

I didn't expect to see a saltwater crocodile, but there he was. As well as this, there were reptiles that were less intimidating to view. The guide provided an interesting and amusing commentary and I was pretty relieved to find out that despite the venom...More
