Check Out the Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo




During the summer we try to come up with different things to do. Not all the time, mind you. I did write a post on how I'm not entertaining the kids during summer break. But we do like to check local places out. We decided to check out the Animal World and Snake Farm Zoo.



If the name sounds familiar it might be because it was featured on Dirty Jobs.


Obviously, as the name implies, there are snakes:




But there are also other animals.

This is me when I've eaten too many carbs:







This is me when my kids talk about Minecraft:







There's also a petting zoo. You can buy some feed when you pay for your tickets. A llama named Hans greets you:


I'm kidding. He's not always there. And his name isn't Hans. I have no idea what his name is. Or maybe it's a girl. But it looked like a boy named Hans.

Hans wants some of your food:



There are also goats. And pigs.




The goats will start surrounding fairly quickly. Some goats are rude and will try to take the bag. Other goats will bump against you like, "Hello? Feed me! Now!" Sort of like the plant on Little Shop Of Horrors.



They are persistent:



You'd think Natalie's favorite part would be the goats, but no. She loved the chicks that were running around.





There are also various shows throughout the day. We stayed for the one about snakes:



And yes, you CAN touch the snake. Natalie rushed right on up:



She's always loved snakes though. When she was 6, her school had a petting zoo come to the school and she happily wore a snake:


She's always loved animals. ALL animals. So she had a fantastic time.

If you go to the snake farm want want to check out a delicious place to eat, go to Cooper's Old Time Pit BBQ. It's pretty close and has amazing brisket:



Do you like snakes?

    I'm more like Indiana Jones than Natalie - "Anything but snakes!" Although I'm not phobic of them, just respectively cautious!

  11. Researchers and Veterinarians who commit themselves to creature nourishment have made a couple of such fixings, despite the fact that a couple of the indistinguishable fixings are made for people. caninesdelight

  12. Love the chicken bytthe snake , I won't dare go near less to talk about my children golfing one. We watch from afar my dear. When I was younger I could only have flash backs of snakes biting my siblings and mum when ergo farming. Yes train them tobd friendly as you like, I won't go near them ��
    My respect to anyone playing with dangerous animals ��������

  13. Yeah ... love the concept and I'm sure my girls would love it too. But mom, touching snakes? No can do. And I think they would like this so much more than the snake thing at Rainforest Cafe where they didn't get to touch at all~

  14. Opps, Sorry I pressed the wrong key. The pig is massive.

  17. Animals are always a great hit with kids and adults alike. Looks like you had a great time!

  18. The animal zoo looks and sounds like a ton of fun. No snakes will come even close to me. Yes I am a big baby when it comes to snakes.

    ReplyDelete

  22. Your descriptions are hilarious, especially the one about carbs! I have been telling myself I'm going to wear a snake around my neck because I've touched smaller ones before. I'd have to have a shot or two before then though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sounds like a day full of fun especially for the kids! I love taking them to farms and zoos because they get to interact with the animals and appreciate them more too.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow, I love going to the zoo, it actually relaxes and de-stresses me :) thank you for sharing and for the lovely photos.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I don't do snakes...at all. Ick! However, my husband and daughter would love to go to that place. Now I'm gonna have to pull the episode of Dirty Jobs!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am so not a snake fan! However, the other animals would be cool to see. :) That pig just totally made me laugh. It's how I feel after my vacation.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh no, no, no snakes for me even in a cage although my son and husband would love visiting here.

    ReplyDelete
  44. This sounds like a wonderful destination. I would love to visit this place with the kids. My daughters love seeing animals up close!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Looks like your family had a lot of fun. I haven't been to a zoo in a lot of years. I bet this one was real interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This looks like a great place to take kids to let them experience animals(although I would be quickly passing by the snakes LOL). The goats would be my most likely favorite. The can be such comedians.

    ReplyDelete
  47. This sounds like such a fun place to take the family! I bet my kids would love this! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  48. This was so cute! It looks like a great place to take the kids. I have yet to make it to San Antonio in my travels, but will remember this location when we do :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I don't think I'll be handling any snakes, but looks like a fun spot to take the kids.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh wow what a zoo to go and visit. I held a friends corn snake many many years ago but not sure I could hold anything bigger ever! Ekk!

    ReplyDelete
  51. That pig was huge. You had me at Animal World but lost me at Snake Farm. We don't do snakes.

    ReplyDelete
  52. We are heading to the zoo tomorrow. My boys do like looking at the snakes.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That pig reminds me of when I eat too many carbs also. I'm not a huge snake fan, but I'd love to see "Hans" or whatever his name might be, the llama.

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is totally the kind of thing that my kids (both of them!) love to do. And Snake World?!?!? OMG. Wish we had that near us. My son would LOVE it!

    ReplyDelete
  55. nice zoo hangout! I'm scared for snakes kudos to your kids there are brave!

    ReplyDelete
  56. I'd love to go there (minus the snakes). I'm not a huge snake fan, though my 5 year old held one on our last vacay! She's brave as can be.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I like how this place is not like other zoo when animals feel confined.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I’m not the biggest fan of snakes. I think that they look great from a far though. I love seeing the different types at the zoo.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Omg Natalie is so so brave! Love her spirit! I'm petrified of snakes(maybe because I grew up in Africa and the ones I knew were mostly poisonous). Anyway, I love taking my boys to the farm to see the animals. Really love the pictures you used to go with this post x

    ReplyDelete
  60. Farm animals are so much fun to see and interact with (not the snake though, I hate them lol). I love the pig!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Looks like a very nice, fun place! Seeing this reminds me of how long it’s been since I visited our local snake park.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I am a big sissy when it comes to snakes. I like watching documentaries of snakes but it really gives me the chills when I see a live snake. Especially a poisonous one. I wouldn't want to touch one even if I have the opportunity to do so.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I've gotta take a HARD pass on the snake part, no no no! But I would be over the moon to meet Hans the Llama, he's too cute!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I cant wait until weather gets better here and we can go to a wildlife park or zoo with the kids. Miss 2 is yet to have gone :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. Wow, nice place to spend on this summer vacation I am sure my kids would love to go to the zoo and see different animals.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Oh it looks like the kids really enjoyed this; as did you! I love watching snakes slither around.

    ReplyDelete
  67. No, no snakes for me, thank you very much. What a brave little girl!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I always skip on seeing snakes when we visit zoo. I am too scared to close to it.

    ReplyDelete
  69. This looks like so much fun! But I'm so scared of snakes now after reading about that woman that got eaten whole and alive by a python!

    ReplyDelete
  70. oh my gosh that pig is the cutest! I swear I would have one as a pet if I could I love them x

    ReplyDelete
  71. How awesome!This just reminds me of the trips I had when I was younger since I'd do a lot of zoo visits with my classmates. And it just looks even better at this zoo farm; the parrot, snakes and monkey are my favs!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Looks like Natalie had a lot of fun! I love how you put some captions over the animals comparing your feelings. Hahaha Nice humour!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Oh wow! Natalie is so brave! I don't think i would've got that close to the goats or other animals as she did.
