This was a quick stop to break up our drive from NOLA to Austin, TX. It's small, but the kids (12 & 14) really enjoyed being able to hold the little alligators and see the bigger ones swimming around. The teens who worked there seemed, well, slightly disinterested as you'd expect a teen to be, but they were very polite and good with the kids. There's also a huge wall of brochures of places to visit all over LA, so it's worth a stop for that as well!

Super weird that there is just a hut on the side of the road where you can see and even hold baby gators. Kind of fun though!

This was a very quick, clean stop. It was a nice place to stretch our legs. The kids enjoyed getting to hold a baby gator. We ended with Dippin’ Dots.
