    I am totally impressed by this zoo. Accustomed to Italian devastation where pets in small cages that is really the opposite. Given that I am against keeping animals locked up in general but with a children of places so you see them ... and that's nice. stra The monkeys are many and if they wanted to they could leave with a few leaps. The cages are in the jungle, at least pets in their habitat. There are a lot of cats including the black Jaguar which is really beautiful. On Tuesday, the entrance is free. It takes at least a few hours to visit them all.

    One of the worst zoo never seen, many empty cages and without indications about what kind of animal should be there. Also the path is too long for the few things there are to see, is more of a children's Park.

    The best zoo I've ever met. The father is in a jungle, black Jaguars are impressive.
