The animals here were in not so roomy cages and our area once had a protest against this place because of that. I cant remember if they let you take photos or not.

I am a frequent visitor at this zoo, so I can personally attest to the condition and care of the animals. The main point of my review is to clarify some misperceptions I have read on some reviews. Each and every animal has fresh, clean water. In the enclosures where you don't see "a bucket or dish", these animals have... More

The Zoo looks small from the road but it is a lot bigger in the inside. Lots of great animals to see. Our family had a wonderful experience.

This is an ok zoo . It is small and limited animals . Lots of monkeys . Peacocks, ducks roam around free. Worth the money just to check it out.

This is the saddest zoo i have ever visited. The enclosures are far too small and every one of the animals looked miserable. My family and I couldn't even finish walking through because of how sad it was. I would not recommend this zoo to any animal lovers. I regret giving them any money whatsoever. I will not be coming...

I have been to this zoo many times and have never been disappointed. The enclosures are clean and the animals seem to be cared for. They have a museum of "Ripley's" type items just to the right after you enter the zoo. There are small gum vending machines with corn or the food for that particular animal that you can... More
