  • This zoo looks way smaller in the outside than it actually does on the inside. They have a tortoise you can see and it's really cool actually. There is also a certain bird that I love there. If You jump up and down in front of it it copies you and it's really cute. The workers are very friendly. Also there's just different varieties of animals to see.
  • Went for the first time today and really enjoyed it! The staff is really friendly, they got out all kinds of snakes, rats, tortoises, birds and even a skink for the kids to hold, and they offered up a lot of information on each animal. The staff was great with my 8 year old nephew who was unsure of some of the critters. It's a great place to go! We will definitely be back!
  • Just visited today! Great way to spend the afternoon! You can feed most of the animals and even hold some! Staff is friendly and highly motivated to make you enjoy your visit! Will be coming back soon
  • Took our 1 1/2 year old son and we loved this place. Lived in Jacksonville and now New Bern and never had been here and would come back. There is plenty to see and it takes about 1 hour to go through and the staff that shows some of he animals are very kind and patient when showing animals. For the little toddlers bring a stroller just incase they get tired of walking:)
  • Honestly I wanted to hug every animal, they looked like they just wanted to be let out or given attention. There was one goat that obviously needed a veterinarian. It couldn't even sit down. I don't know if it was pregnant or it needed to be milked and was being neglected. I felt VERY sad walking around. At the end they show you all the different small animals that look healthy and clean and it just makes you wonder why those were so taken care of yet all the others looked depressed and uncared for
