Overview

Began in 1977 as a fish farm to raise tilapia for human consumption. The geothermal well is 2050 feet deep and 87 degrees. In 1987, the first alligators were brought in as "garbage disposals" for dead fish. Some of these original gators are now 11 feet long and weigh over 500 pounds. There are many species of exotic reptiles on our farm, most of which come from uninformed pet owners, or are sent by police and animal control agencies. We take care of these animals as best we can and display them for education of the public.
