    Paul, Brayden, and all the staff were superb. Paul's genuine love, enthusiasm and knowledge made it a perfect day. Our private 'sloth encounter' was wonderful, but those two sloth fellas are pretty reluctant hosts and mostly just hung out in their corners and took a few small nibbles of snacks from our grandson as we gave them a few gentle pets. I thought the staff might hold them a bit closer to us, but they were sleepy (sloths, not Brayden!) so we let them be. Brayden was amazing and let us stay on premises a bit longer and do a little 'meet and greet' with a few tortoises, and didn't rush us out at all. It is clear the animals are loved, protected, and well cared for. Any reptile enthusiast needs to see these stunning animals; the snakes and lizards are breathtaking. The adorable jogging and nibbling of Paul's shoe by the armadillo, during Paul's mini-show was an awesome plus. Paul and everyone made us feel so welcome. Paul makes sure you will get some killer photos with some gorgeous creature.
    Tip- make sure you wear layers; it as hot and muggy as south Texas day in June, so have a tee-shirt on. For those on a budget, you can skip the sloth and still have an amazing time.

    quietly nestled into a small part of Churchill Park lies the Friends of the Aviary in Hamilton. although not a huge facility the first thing I noticed is how dedicated the staff is to their birds. It doesn't take long to cover the whole place so we took our time and tried to have a chat with many of the lovely birds with some responding. you see pictures of these animals but rarely come this close so the colours were very impressive. I will be back but next time in the summer so we can get a better look at the surrounding grounds. highly recommended.

    Our grandsons, 3 and 15 month thoroughly enjoyed their visit to the petting area. They were captivated with their interactions with all the animals and were totally entertained for a good hour; not a small feat with little ones. We were fortunate to have warm but not hot weather during our morning visit. The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed. The animals were gentle and comfortable being touched. As staff wandered around doing chores, it was clear that these rescued animals were well loved and cared for.
    Check in was efficient and quick and the young man assisting us gave us an overview of amenities.
    This visit was reasonably priced and worth every penny. We plan to return.
