It looks like a dive or maybe a junkyard, but it is worth the time to see the snakes and spiders! Who knew how many types of rattlesnakes there were here in the US? The place is dingy, but the snake cages are clean and...More

Very small place that houses a lot of snakes, turtles and creepy bugs. As it is small, it doesn't take much time and the kids really liked seeing so many creatures. Fairly priced and unique.

Small, kooky, creepy (?), Texas oddity, but they really do have quite the different variety of rattlers and a few other critters. Plus a couple of big 'uns in the back.

This is a fun thing to do with kids but only takes about 20 minutes. They have many snakes and reptiles but it is sort of dark. Is a small town and was an inexpensive novel thing to do.

I have visited the area several times, and am alway deterred from visiting because of all the junked vehicles out front. . . However, I want to get the most of my travels, and I thought it would be worth it once. You have to...More

Usually we skip snake and gator places, but we usually encounter them in high-traffic tourist areas. Think of South Florida. This placed looked authentic. It's not large, it's not at all showy. It looked like the place I would want to live if I were...More
