  • We absolutely loved our experience at this zoo. We expected a basic reptile exhibit but it was so much more. The interactive part was the best and the bat exhibit was simply amazing. Also the place has a great personal feel to it that makes it so much more enjoyable than the larger zoos. And the zoo workers are great with their enthusiasm and insightful information. Highly recommended and a big thank you to all the staff for a great experience!
  • Little Ray's is a shining example what a great interactive rescue/zoo is all about. It's fun, educational and always engaging. The kids absolutely love our visits to Little Ray's. It's sad to see them move to a new location so much farther away but I know my family and I are excited to see what kinds of things they can do with all that extra space.
