Bring bug repellent, or they will eat you alive. Tiger experience was extra, but really great!

BOY, AM I GLAD TO BE INFORMED THAT YOU CANNOT TAKE PICTURES. PHOTOGRAPHY IS MY PASSION AND HOBBY. I WILL NOT BE MAKING THE TRIP. WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT. NEED TO SPREAD THE WORD TO ALL CAMERA CLUBS ON THE WEST COAST NOT TO WASTE THEIR TIME. DJ

We had a wonderful time at Wild Things. We had no idea what to expect but were so pleased with the tour. Encounters were extra and photos were extra but we just considered it a donation. It takes a lot of $ to feed all the animals.

I would recommend Dade City Wild Things to everyone. It's a great place for everyone to go to. The zoo is really laid out nice.

Loved it!! The kids are still talking about the baby tiger, the coyote, and the bobcat they got to pet.

It was interesting and the animals were exotic. My only peeve was that the cages were very small for the size of the animals. They need much larger cages to live in.

The experience gave a close encounter with some very big cats. It gave a different perspective than a typical zoo.

Having read some of the reviews, I was almost unenthused about going. However, our trip turned out to be a really wonderful experience. We were in a small group of six; only two were going on an encounter. They took the rest of us back to the main building so we didn't have to wait while the encounter took place. Our guide, although relatively new to the facility, was very friendly, informative, and pleasant. The animals were awesome and we got a better view of them than we ever had before in any zoo. We do plan to return and take the tram version of the experience. Although we won't be as close to the animals, we will see species that we did not see this time. Highly recommend.

From Our Editors

Dade City's Wild Things puts visitors within 3 feet of most of its menagerie, which includes more than 200 animals on exhibit. Botanical gardens blanket the zoo's 22-acre expanse, providing a scenic backdrop for creatures such as a tiger, lion, lemur, bear, and baboon. Separated from most animals by a few feet, a chain-link fence, and the ability to knit socks out of their own fur, opposable-thumbed guests can explore the animal offerings by walking tour or tram ride. Dade City's Wild Things further upholds its aim to connect people with animals by offering opportunities for close cross-species interaction, such as feeding buffalo in grazing fields on the Jungle Safari Ride, swimming with a tiger, or reserving an animal encounter, which provides a chance for visitors to interact one-on-one with a choice of critters including a zebra foal, gator hatchling, and African pygmy-goat kid.
