Very cute place! The only downside was many of the animals weren’t there- inside or outside. We did see TONS of turkey vultures, lemurs, snakes, turtles, emus, a rabbit, fish, cranes, marmosets, and turkeys. There were no river otters or deer and many of the cages were empty so I’m not sure what would be in them. My son was 3 so his admission was free and it was $6 I believe for an adult ticket which was an extremely affordable price. The land and walkways were beautiful. If there weren’t so many empty cages, I would have given 5 stars. Woman at admission desk was very kind and informative!
Wonderful staff. Very clean. Cute animals. Great price. A fun little weekday activity
