Animal adventure in Bolton, MA
Absolutely The best, A must to go - you can really touch all these exotic animals. People there are great, too Go with kids, adults will enjoy it too.
Animal Adventures is Great!!!!!
My wife and I were looking for something different to do with our 2 and 8 year old kids. We spent about 2 hours at their facility. While the facilily was not elaborate, they had an amazing array of animals. Due to the fact it was not crowded, we had a private guide who educated us about the animials. He took most of the animals out for us to pet. He was very informative and so nice to my kids. I would definately take your family to this wonderful establishment
Birthday Party Entertainment
We hired this company to bring animals to my daughter's 8th birthday party. She likes all animals, but particularly furry ones, so I requested mammals only. What a hit! There was an incredible variety, from the common, but still fun (ferret, GIANT bunny, skunk) to the more exotic (hedgehog, flying squirrel, chinchilla), plus they threw in the baby alligator for good measure. At least 10 animals total. The presenter had many interesting tidbits to tell about each animal and let the kids touch and occasionally even hold them. We all had a great time, and while it's certainly not an inexpensive choice, it's one I'd highly recommend. If we lived closer to Bolton, I would have taken the kids to their facility instead, as there are many more animals to see and it's less $$. But this was a great option.
