  • This is really the worst Zoo I have ever seen. Of the larger animals as elephants and hippos have only one of each. These are then also put down in a way too small loft. The elephant is actually also on a kind of parking lot because has nothing else. There are many animals deforms. And the staff excites it all not much because everyone can feel free to throw food in all pens. In short if you don't like animals keep out there bad shape or in a much too small loft life or with far too much, go there or not.
