At our Nature Park and Botanical Gardens you will find over 450 animals living here from alligators to a zebra! Sloths, coatimundis, kinkajous and lemurs are just a few who call the 4 1/2 acre park home. Enter into one of the aviaries to see a wide variety of birds, iguanas, tortoises and turtles roaming freely waiting for you to feed them. Inside the Eco Lab, you will find native and exoctic snakes and reptiles, also hissing cockroaches and a variety of spiders and insects that call this building home.  It’s quirky as a get-out and just as much fun!  239.995.2141, 2787 N Tamiami Trail (US41) North Fort Myers.
