  • This is a teaching zoo. So I enjoyed questioning the students and see if they knew the answers or had to look them up, but they always got the answers either way. I tried to stump the students, but they were very educated. Small but nice zoo with many different animals and reptiles too. Shaded are so not too hot in the sunshine and had tables for picnic area too. But enjoyed every moment.
  • This is one of the best things to do in Gainesville. It’s a small zoo, but the animals are exotic and cover a wide range. Well worth the price. You will probably spend an hour here. On prior reviews, I agree it is not wheel chair friendly given the mulch pathways. That’s literally the only down side. You will find the remainder of negative reviews are foolish at best.
