All Butterfly's are the same species and besides this there are two Phytons and some other animals held under miserable condition. The snakes are overfed and can hardly move. A place like this should in no way be supported.

This "sanctuary" is really poor!!! The animlas which have to eke out a miserable existence there are to be pitied. Their cages are far too small, dirty, ungroomed, stink. My heart reaches out to all those miserable creatures imprisoned there!
