My boyfriend and I were visiting FL from New York, and Carson Springs Wildlife was #1 on my list of places to visit while we were down here and let me tell you, they did not disappoint. We can't stop telling everyone about our visit here, will probably be one of the best and most memorable experiences in our life. I'll start out by saying how well kept the grounds are, and how cared for and loved these animals are by Barry, his wife and the whole team at Carson Springs. Everyone is so beyond knowledgable, caring and sweet. We started out the morning by getting to hold and play with a 1 1/2 month old clouded leopard named Tosh, she was only about 5 lbs and the sweetest thing. Then we went on a 2 hour tour, and got to see so many beautiful animals up close, feed a rhino and watch Barry interact with his animals. THEN we ended the tour with a very special interaction with baby Jess a hyena, whom we got to play with and be up close with. It was so crazy and cool! We can't wait to come back and visit. HIGHLY recommend!!
