  • There is lots of room for people and inhabitants. The enclosures are ample and all the animals seem healthy and comfortable. Great use of space! Everyone is so friendly and the gift shop is reasonable...  more »
  • I'm always impressed by our little zoo Always clean. Great exhibits and the animals are close enough to see while still living in a decent environment
