Overpriced, OK for short visit 2 out of 5 stars
For what it is, its very expensive. The butterflies are nice and there are loads of turtles, but that bit is only about half an hour's worth at the most. The otter section is incredibly tired and shabby. There are otters, but really hard to see them outside of feeding time as they are shy animals by nature. So check feeding times and aim to be there then. The feeding time was nice to see, but I wouldn't go back and would not recommend it. Sorry.jmharris
