Yes, well... this was interesting.

Only a few butterflies. Dead, decaying and disappearing insect displays. The interior displays were eaten away by mice. The otters stuck in a miserable concrete-rocked cage with nowhere to bed down. While we were there, they started to beg the trainer for food as he went past. Steve saw him jump at them so as to scare them, he later went back with a stick and started beating their cage. Impressive! I wonder what happens when no visitors are there.

There are huge Koi fish at the farm which kids and adults alike love to watch eat. You can purchase food for them at the reception. There are caged birds around the garden, but nothing exotic. I just wanted to let them all out. Not very impressed at all, but not the worst I have seen with regard to the living conditions of the animals.

Children under 10 years 100 baht,
Adults & kids over 10 yrs 200baht entry fee.
I would not say this place was worth the visit.

Open 9.00am - 5.30pm daily
