Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. We even listened to one person call in and ask about taking care of their pet snake. Highly recommend the 11:30 AM carnivore feeding tour with Stacey! ;)

Nice and small. Staff super friendly and knowledgeable. You can tell they love their animals! My 3 yr old's favorite thing to do here is feed the chickens! Which is funny because there are so many other cool animals.

Our group (aged 13 and up) had a great time here, but we love animal- and people-watching. If any of your group is creeped out by snakes, leave them at home. Spring for the petting zoo feed for everyone - its a blast!

Great place to see a large number of snakes. You can get up close (they are in glass cases of course) You can also see some other animals like monkeys, zebras, peacocks, and a lot of other neat animals.

We took our Grandchildren to see the Snake farm and it was delightful. We bought feed and went into the petting zoo where the Llamas and the goats would eat from our hands. The employees gave excellent shows at feeding time and answered every question...More

Just not what we expected. No interaction with any of the animals. But over all a good family thing. We only stayed about an hr so I'm not sure if it's worth the price tag

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.
