  • Love it here! Very well kept by the students and staff. Has a nice playground for little ones. Students are very knowledgeable and friendly. They have reptiles, an aviary, otters, lemurs, gibbons and more!
  • 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.
