  • Completely abandoned the territory, the beasts look racked, not so long ago, everything was much better. Do not drive your children here, not see this nightmare.

  • The zoo is adjacent to central park, I took us, but honestly I'd have done without, I notice poorly maintained animals and even a sick Lion, many cages are empty, I was looking forward to the time you leave.
