Carl and staff were so informative. Watching Carl extract the venom from 4 different snakes was amazing. You can tell education is too of their list. I came all the way from Pennsylvania to see this amazing place. I was not disappointed at all. It exceeded my expectations above and beyond. If your a reptile enthusiast this is a great place to visit. Carl came out in the end of his presentation and answered questions and even posed with people whom wanted photos. An amazing adventure.
Awesome exhibit and the staff was amazing! The live venom extraction was an exceptional experience, demonstrating the first step of creating an anti-venom. Would definitely go back.
