Leslie Rush


Exotic Animal Experience is one of the most unique, hands on, interactive animal encounters in Florida! Our animals have been brought up here from infancy as pets, have lived in the house in diapers and been socialized for months and years. These are animals you will normally only see behind bars and fences in zoos, but not here! They not only love the interaction, but look forward to it!

Our animals are native to a number of different countries, but since they have been brought up as siblings, this make no difference to them! They would never come into contact with each other in the wild, but here, they are family, and are not only enjoy each others company, but also enjoy your company. We invite you to come have an experience you will not soon forget!
