The porcupines are really cool! Very friendly! I learned some new facts after talking with the employee. He was very informative. I would definitely recommend this encounter...

The park was amazing. We participated in both the Sloth encounter and Porcupine encounter. The porcupine encounter was very informative and interactive. Safari and Stella were so cute and playful. All of the enclosures were clean and well maintained. The staff are very friendly, knowledgeable, and interactive. The only concern i had was the single Sloth habitat. The heat lamp was not on or working and the temperatures were cold for them. The sloth was shaking in a ball most of the day, when i passed by. I hope it's been fixed for the sloth's sake. We will definitely be visiting again soon and participating in other encounters.

This was a wonderful experience! The porcupines were basically like playing with little puppies. If visiting wild Florida this is an encounter not to be missed. The porcupines are so sweet!
