Live / Office Animals
Come and visit our State Park Office to see a collection of common animals found in Kansas.
Have you ever touched a snake? Do you want to? Well, here's your chance. We have several "nice", friendly snakes that don't mind being held. Daily, we have kids of all ages (8-80 year olds) who come into the Park Office that just can't wait to see one up close and personal. We've even changed a few people's minds when it comes to snakes. Whether you want to identify a snake or just want to know what to look out for, this is the perfect place to do it. Our office display started over 10 years ago with just a Copperhead and a Timber Rattlesnake. Now we have a total of 11 different types of snakes native to Kansas, 4 different types of turles, 2 types of lizards, a toad & several kinds of fish.
Contact us today for a FREE Show & Tell! Gather your group, be it Scouts, School, Church Group or you'd like to bring your whole family. We can schedule a "Show & Tell". Get a private tour and a hands on experience for all to enjoy! (Minimum of 10 per group.)
