The woman that hosted our experience was excellent. She answered every question my wife and I had and was very friendly. You could tell she loved these animals dearly and took very good care of them. This was our second encounter and we will be back next year to get to know the Lemurs. Thanks for another great day.

I love the porcupines! They are so friendly and cute! Spike is a little shy but Stella is always up for some grapes and pets!

Feeding Stella and Spike was an awesome experience for my family. My 97 year old mother was with us and didn’t want any part of feeding them until she saw how gentle they were and then enjoyed the experience too. I will tell everyone who might be interested about your wonderful park. Thank you for the memories we will all talk about in the future.

We had a great time. The gal, can nit remember her name, is so knowledgeable. She answered all the ? And more! The quills were hollow and the touch of a porcupine was straw like. Spike and Stella were great to feed.
