Tiny but pretty decent. Good animal variety. I think some of it was under renovation though. All my mosquito bites come from there :)

although I'm not a fan of trapped animals, there is a wide variety and caretakers are always keeping an eye of the animals inside. Tuesdays and thurdays there a living zoo where you can touch some of the animals(not lions of course!!)
