Scales and Tails Utah – Things To Do In Utah

There are so many things to do in Utah. After school this past Wednesday I took my girls to Scales and Tails Utah. This was an opportunity to get up close to turtles, alligators, snakes, lizards and more. The reason we chose Scales and Tails Utah is because it is temporarily included in the Pass of All Passes so we were able to go for free. It was a little tricky finding the entrance. We turned in on the north side of the building when it would have been easier to enter on the south. ...
