Do you have children that love bugs, reptiles and amphibians? Dinosaurs?
If it moves, my children love it! A couple of years ago, my nephew had his birthday at new party location called The Reptile Zoo. I was ill that day and was unable to experience the party myself.
When my husband came home with the kids, they told stories of large snakes and lizards wandering around the facility. Being a zoo keeper, I was happy that my kids got the chance to get up close and personal with their new scaly friends.
My daughter loved the animals until a lizard stuck its tongue in one of her ears. It took awhile but she got over her uneasiness and interacted and held a corn snake.
Recently, I was part of a group of blogging moms and their families that took a look at the great learning experience that is the Reptile Zoo. There are few places besides expensive zoos that you can walk into where you can see such a wide variety of reptiles, amphibians and bugs and have knowledgeable staff that can teach our young ones without us touching them ourselves.
