There are about 450 crocodiles and other reptiles in the centre. Makenzie, growing up in Bellevue, Nebraska, didn't scare of wild animals like snakes or crocodile because she has seen many of them in her living area since she was young. 

She named one of the crocodiles "Big Tax", who is her good friend, and took graduation photos with it.
