    Reptiles, Birds, plants, fossils, skeletons - they got it all. Great shows and was fun for kids and adults.

    This place is incredible! Lots to see, clean facilities, pleasant staff and the performers at the shows (I saw 3 shows, 1 performer did 2 of them) were great and would tailor their humor. Recommended!

    Cool place to visit. Felt bad for all the crocodiles shoved into a tiny exhibit.

    The snake show is great, and not just for kids! Lots of awesome exhibits and a beautifully kept flower garden. Great place to spend an afternoon!

    Kind of small for being the "world's largest reptile collection", & the food is overpriced, but the staff is friendly. They allow dogs on leashes so you don't have to leave them in the car!

    The alligator show is great! The trainer keeps the show fun & you learn a lot about the different kinds of gators. He's not bad on the eyes either. Lots of other critters to see also.

    A must stop for anyone visiting Mt Rushmore. The amount of reptiles here were amazing to see. Most of which you will not see anywhere else in the country.

    Alligator show is a must see! Handler is witty and gives a great show (and not bad to look at either).

    One if the largest collections of Reptiles, with many rare species! Definitely worth $15. Avoid Henda though, she's finicky.

    Go visit the tortoise house and meet Methuselah - South Dakota's oldest living resident. Methuselah was born in 1881 and weighs 600 pounds!
