  • In my opinion is a small ZOO, how little variety of animals, is worth a visit for those who live in very different region to the cerrado and child. Free of charge. Ride with maximum 1 hr of duration.

  • I took my niece to the Zoo and I was extremely sad and ashamed. A city like Cuiabá representing green, flora and fauna deserve a decent Zoo. The animals are in poor conditions. Authorities Socorrroooo!!!!!

  • O zoológico da UFMT ainda é bom lugar para passear com a família especialmente nos fins de semana, é uma pena que anda meio descuidado, tem muitas capivaras soltas pelo campus.
  • Falta tratado melhor os animais e cuidar do zoológico. Está um pouco abandonado.
  • Zoológico público com os animais do pantanal. Estrutura deixa a desejar.
  • Apesar de ser público, poderia ocorrer melhorias que aumentaria a quantidade visitantes.
  • Pouca estrutura. Está ficando cada dia mais abandonado.
