We had a great time at Wild Florida, the zoo is beautiful! We really enjoyed our porcupine encounter and Kaitlyn was awesome, very sweet and knowledgeable, she made us feel at ease with these animals! We will definitely be back!
Kayla did an excellent job. She was very knowledgeable and truly seemed to enjoy working at Wild Florida and giving tours. We were able to ask questions and were never rushed.
I thoroughly loved my encounters with the porcupines, then ant eaters! When in with the porcupines I never worried. Immediately felt comfortable. Knelt down to get close & was covered in clay foot prints LOL. Those passing by were kinda freaked LOL The ant eaters where much slower, but equally lovable. With a cute slurping of their bug-shakes. With a cute snout :) In both, I learned a lot from the care takers, who were great. These were my 4th & 5th encounters, and I'll be back!
It was a great experience all around! Amazing animals, knowledgeable staff, and good times.
The cleanliness of the exhibits, animals appear to be well taken care of, and the memory our daughter and her grandpa will have of feeding the porcupines together.
Love this place! And had an awesome time! Porcupine encounter was awesome! Everything is really nice, well cared for & fun!
The entire staff is great. They're all happy to talk, energetic, and really seem like they want to be there. The porcupines were awesome, but really Turtelinni is the true star. He should have his own encounter.
THE LADY THAT WORKED WITH US AND THE PORCUPINES WAS GREAT. SHE ANSWERED ALL QUESTIONS AND WAS VERY PATIENT WITH US TAKING PICTURES. GREAT ATMOSPHERE.
My son and I enjoyed the entire park, great day trip. The encountered was nice since it was just the two of us giving us time with trainer and relaxed time with the porcupines.
The person assisting us with our encounter “Maria” was absolutely amazing, knowledgeable, and very helpful with our experience. Could not have gone any better.
I could not have loved it more! The girl who led the encounter was great!
My daughter had SO much fun!
A very underrated experience, but definitely amazing. Stella was very friendly and we loved her spinning trick. I would highly recommend this encounter.
The porupine encounter was amazing. I love coming to Wild Florida. We always have a good time.
Had a great time. The porcupines were very friendly.
