My parents flew out to visit and we decided to give Sharkarosa a try. They loved spending the time with their grandchildren and observing all of the animals. We waited only a very short time for the guided tour and were amazed by the experience of being in the midst of all of the animals. We decided to bring a picnic lunch and then got back to the animals! Everyone there was friendly and helpful. Mom and Dad want to take the grandchildren by themselves next time! Be warned, it isnt like a regular zoo, but you can see how well cared for the animals are. Thumbs up all the way around

If you have a free day, spend it here with the kids. No need to bring anything but you and the little ones. Its all here. The guided tour was awesome. The line was a little long, but moved very quickly. We got to see lots of animals that were extremely well taken care of. The employees were knowledgeable and helpful at every turn. We got to pet some of the animals as well, while asking tons of questions. We got lunch and drinks there, also. Not your typical zoo experience, but fun, nonetheless. We are planning our next trip here!

I really didnt know what to expect before we went. I was pleasantly surprised when I took my family. Actually, it was a great time. The employees were well informed about the animals, and took the time to answer questions. The kids got to learn about animals and actually got to touch a few of them. They also got to ride on a little train as well! The tour was well organized no wait! Dont be afraid to try this place, just go! Bring your family Kids had a great time. Oh, you can bring lunch or get it there.

This trip was wonderful. We got there early and didn't have to wait in line for the tour. Being up close to the animals was truly amazing. The enclosures were large and accommodating for the animals. The children loved petting the animals and learning about them. It was a fun way to spend the day. I think that I enjoyed it as much as the kids did!

This experience was outstanding. Not only did we get to see endangered animals, the kids got to pet a camel! (So did I!) The animals were well cared for and the employees were friendly and informative. We brought a picnic lunch, but didn't need to - food was available. I'm glad we brought sunscreen, but it was also available at the store there. Great time!

Better than the Fort Worth zoo by miles! This is such an amazing place to take kids or adults of any age! Very clean and beautiful, all the animals have so much space and seem super happy! Love it!

I am a Sharkarosa frequent flyer. Why? It is one of the best places to take people who enjoy seeing exotic animals and like to learn about them up close. I have taken grandkids, visiting family and friends, as well as my students. It opens a new world for anyone who could only imagine what lemurs, kangaroos, camels, sloths, bears, etc like to eat, act around people and survive in the wild. This is not only an adventure but a great education!

I have been to Sharkarosa several times and love it more each visit. The staff is amazing, they are friendly, know everything about thier animals care and really seem to love what they do. We have had several private parties there and every time my clients and guests tell me it was the best event ever! Sara and Scott go above and beyond to make sure we all have a good time. Going often is a must, because everytime you go they have new animals to see and usually new babies. I love the place! Go now and go often, you won't be disappointed!

Sharkarosa is a very unique wildlife ranch and zoo. When you first arrive, you may think "it doesn't look too big..." but don't let that fool you. It sits on about 130 acres. Different activities go on throughout the day--just listen for the announcements over the speaker system.
Let's see...they have an amazing Lemur exhibit. Most of the time they've got baby kangaroos that you can pet! They're very soft like rabbits. And cute :) They bring animals right on out in the middle of the pavilion area (where you are welcome to bring your lunch as well) to give presentations and most of the time you can pet them (depends on what kind of animal they bring out). The tram ride is a must-do experience! There is a great little "bucket-ride" for the younger kids. Don't let it fool ya though--adults go on it all the time as well! They have a 'snack shack' where you can buy food, snacks and drinks in case you didn't bring your own. And they have a great gift shop as well. All in all, it's a fabulous outing for young and old alike. I highly, highly suggest it ! They also have a website that you can visit if you need to find out more about them. www.sharkarosa dot com and they're on Facebook as well.
