We have taken our grandchildren several times and it is always an exciting experience. We saw them feed the giant python a live rabbit and saw nature take its course. Pretty cool.

My 4 yr old really enjoyed all the different species. It's a small, down to earth environment, very nice staff. Only took an hour and the price is very cheap.

the nature center is small and run by volunteers, but a enjoyable stop. There are lots of snakes, (probably the main attraction) but several other critters. The staff were very excited about the striped skunk, Luke Skywalker, but we didn't see him as he was...More
