The staff were very knowledgable about the insects and even got them out of the tanks for us to see. They had a wide range of weird and wonderful bugs and insects. I would definitely recommend this place.

Visited yesterday with my new wife just after we visited the big hole in the ground. Was staggered to learn that it was run by a lovely couple from my wife's home town. It was really nice and great value. I urge you to go.
