I was extremely surprised by the knowledge and compassion of the keeper. I think they would benefit from more staff and interns to develop a training program for all their animals! So much to see and very clean and animals look healthy!

You just gotta spring for some Croc Crunch and feed them yourself. Great fun. They seem to know you have some and come right over, Gators and Crocs alike love this stuff. You can get close enough to see them really well. We had fun.
