Overview
More
Squawk on the Wild Side is now closed and has been replaced by a shoddy outfit called Myla's Ark. This new business lacks all of the enthusiasm and professionalism that Squawk on the Wild Side stood for. It is run by people that have little to no experience of looking after these wonderful, demanding animals. Also they are all to eager to prosecute anybody that questions their judgement or criticises them. This new business is very much money driven, unlike Squawk on the wild side which stood for caring for the animals above and beyond anything else. We would strongly recommend that visitors looking to see Squawk on the Wild Side again, or have been recommended by a friend does not visit this new attraction as you will sorely be disappointed.

This place should be taken for what it is, predominantly a rescue centre which is open to the public to view the animals, which granted does not seem that many-we did not see any marmosets etc... However you should stay for the talk no matter...More
