We were looking for something to do with a toddler for the afternoon, so decided to try this zoo. It's in a shady, natural environment, and the entry fee was reasonable. Even better, the animals are all rescued or are surrendered exotic pets. This means...More

My wife and I love going to zoos around the world and when I tell you it felt like a petting zoo and not an actual Zoo because of the size! It was just okay!
