We came here with our 3 year old and he really enjoyed his time as well did we. He loved the petting zoo and seeing all the snakes they had. They even showed us some baby cougars. Pretty neat place and not super pricey either,...More

When you first walk in, you go through a maze of different snakes. I don't like snakes and neither does my son, but past the snakes, they have lots of different animals. Its worth the visit with the kids even if you don't like snakes....More

Animal World and Snake Farm continues to grow, every visit is better than the last. The new exhibit of Cheetahs is beautiful. And i can never leave without seeing the large variety of snakes.

Went with a friend of mine she wanted to hold a snake. I'm not a big fan of snakes, but heard there were other animals there. Had a blast seeing the other animals and really enjoyed the petting farm.

Definitely lots of cool snakes to see but the rest is really small. They are expanding though so hopefully the enclosures will get bigger. It's a bit pricey for what it is currently.

Staff: Friendly, knowledgeable, really seem to enjoy their job, which is fun for guests. Animals: There are so many more than you would think. Really! As a kid, they mostly just had snakes when I came, but 20+ years later, they have lions and panthers...More

Took my nephews. They loved it. They even brought out one of the snakes for everyone to pet and take pictures. Helps give everyone education on snakes and other animals. You can even feed some of the animals. They take great care of the animals

Yes! all pet-able animals are running wild in the park and it seems they are just waiting for the train to ride through so they can get fed by the guests arriving.

Sorry, I do not believe you can . There are so many animals and birds close, I wouldn't anyway. It's small in there but they've just bought 20 acres to expand the zoo. We're so excited for them.

No. You do not put aligators and crocodiles together. They are different species.
