  • The zollógico is very neat, clean, organized, well tratatados. Has many different animals, well wooded, with many banks, clean bathrooms. Only inconvenient are the people who stare at car outside the Zoo, and a clown who delivers toy for the kids and then snake donates parents the value of toy-lots of appeal
