My family (which included my parents, younger sisters, and my husband) was skeptical about going to a zoo located across from NASCAR Cafe, but, boy were we surprised! We had a great time! The staff was very friendly when we came in through the entrance, which is also a huge gift shop (which has very reasonably priced items). It smelled a little when we went through to the exhibits, but a little later, they may have burned incense, because then the smell went away. We went at a perfect time, as all the reptiles were being fed fresh fruits and vegetables, so all of them were very active and interesting. Yes, there are lots of reptiles, but they also have some cuddly ones like coatimundis, genets, lemurs, a serval, and a hilariously adorable African Crested porcupine named George that follows the keepers around like a puppy! Hadji, the monitor lizard stood up against the glass whenever we came to his exhibit. There were blue and gold macaws that said Bye Bye and waved to us as we left them. We also caught the animal show, where we got to touch an alligator, hedgehog, cockatoo, tarantula, George, tortoise, and ball python. The show was informative and funny.
