all the areas such as the jungle, desert, butterfly house and night areas were awesome. Its a very large zoo and to see everything, you would need to get there at opening.

From a photographer's perspective, we had our camera bags and monopods. The day we were there, the zoo was packed and tripods would have been hard to use.
