We went to "reptile gardens" on ds's birthday last monday. The kids wanted to see the critters-i just wanted to see the flowers. They have some amazing orchids and other tropical flowers in thier indoor displays. They also have some pretty brave folks working there as you can see by the guy pulling the gator/croc out of the pool. I'll admit i am a wimp when it comes to reptiles, i dont mind them as long as they are waaaaaayyyy over there! But the kids had a great time and i'm guessing we will end up back there at least once before we get transferred out of here.
