This reptile sanctuary and its people and animals are totally awesome! If this sanctuary did not exist, these precious animals would have been euthanized. There is such a need for a safe haven such as this, with people who have a passion for these animals....More

While we were there recently, they did have a visitor in a wheelchair. Everything is level with the exception of the gazebo area, which has a ramp up to it. I don't see any reason why you could not visit. It is not a large area, but a very informative and fun visit. Enjoy!
