A few weeks ago, we were blessed by my aunt with the gift of a year family pass to a local reptile zoo that she’d won at a charity auction. Since it was rainy today and out original plans wouldn’t work, we decided to head over to the zoo for the first time.
It’s a small indoor zoo that is home to many different reptiles and a few mammals, such as marmosets and even a white skunk. They also have piranhas, scorpions, and tarantulas.
It’s hard to guage the size of that tortoise by the photo, but it came to almost knee-height!
The kids loved it! Tobi surprised me by even knowing the proper names of a few of the animals (such as marmosets and iguanas, that he recognized from Go, Diego, Go.)
We saw huge tortoises, large snakes of different kinds, and even a couple full grown alligators. We only stayed for about an hour, but since we have the year pass we can go back any time. What a great learning experience for the kids!
