One of the best zoos I've been too. They had everything. It was also well shaded with plenty of trees. It's designed so you can get up close and personal with the animals. It only cost $3 to feed and pet a giraffe. Amazing zoo.

I don't think they allow pets unless maybe it's a service dog. You might want to contact them to be sure though.
