I recently visited because someone mentioned they had gotten giraffes. Not yet, but they say in the future. They have added many more animals, so it is much more than just a snake farm. Worth a trip and children really love it. Very warm so...More

They have things going on every 1/2 hour which was cool. Lots of snakes, birds, and other animals. We saw their new baby mountain lions. You can find coupons for animal food at the hotels in town.

We stopped by on our way home to Houston. We absolutely had a blast. They do a new show every 30 minutes and you can get very close to the wild animals. Look at the snakes of Texas to teach your kids the bad snakes...More

Decades ago when I was a wee lad the Snake Farm was one of those stereotypical side of the road attractions that had little to offer. It was essentially a pit with a few snakes, some gophers out back, trinkets and oddities. Now this place...More

Don't let the entrance fool you, this place is worth a visit. There is a large variety of animals here - the sloths, wolves, monkeys, and hyenas were some of our favorites. The entire place is well maintained and very enjoyable to visit. We went...More

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.
