  • Located at the federal University of mt, contains interesting animals, especially snakes. There are huge ounces! The weak point is the heat and the lack of structures. Worth a visit especially with children. Have to walk about 1 mile until you come to the Zoo, so always carry a bottle of water!

  • Zoo precarious, have few species of animals, and those who are not trained to interact with the public.

  • The Zoo hasn't been taken care of If I expected more in the organizational and environmental issues. Slim animals ... not very well-signposted walks. It would be interesting to review appropriate installations for the opening to the public.

  • 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.
