I recommend this zoo to any local or even traveler coming from afar. I live local to this city and they have added so many new additions onto this zoo that it is wayyyy worth your money, take the whole family because everyone is garunteed to have a blast.

We visited this zoo over the course of two days There is alot to see and do. The train and the tram are great ways to get a bit more information about the animals. The aquarium was also very interesting!

Henry Dooley Zoo is always #1 in the world or in the top 3 depending on attendance figures. I don't believe you can see it all in one day. Beautiful habitats have been set up for the animals and it is always getting better.

We have only seen a quarter of the zoo and already it is the best zoo I’ve ever been to. We started at the Lied Jungle and then went to the aquarium: So educational, so beautiful: birds, mammals, sea creatures m, reptiles from grouped together natural settings according to their regions.

We saw fish eating the skin off of a hippo. Birds are flying over head (watch out for droppings), bats are hanging out, and at 4pm they start flying around. In the acquarium there is a touch tank, we touched starfish! We got to the penguins in time for their meal: 100lbs of fish per day! Wow! And the zoo educator offered cards with information on sustainable fishing.

We have to go back to see more, so much fun!
