  • Great place for adults and kids who love kids. Experience a once-in-a-lifetime chance to interact with animals on a person message that no other zoo provides.  more »
  • We got excited by the reviews and were looking forward to a visit but unfortunately the zoo has now closed its doors indefinitely. So sorry to have missed the opportunity!  more »
  • I am so excited for all of the new renovations and amazing things that are coming. Everyone was great and helpful and it was so obvious how much they love those animals. It was clean and fun, with the needs of the animals always being the first thing considered. I can't wait to go back and hang out with my new buddy, Velcro the sloth.
  • I love Roos-N-More... it breaks my heart directly in half to hear of their current struggle. Please read all reviews of Roos-N-More (including mine) and please make it your goal to help and make the trip to see the animals and cuddle up with the Otters. I got to experience this amazing place as a gift and with a private tour for 2 hours. I never in my life thought, having grown up going to zoo's all over this large continent called North America (and Central America) that I would ever be able to cuddle up to some of the animals I had seen. The education I received while on tour here was second to none. Our tour guide was funny, engaging, entertaining, intelligent, and so helpful. He answered every single question I had, along with my compatriots, no matter how silly or serious. I got to do things I never thought I would be able to do with little huff-n-puff critters. I got to play with otters (they sat on my lap, and danced at my feet) I got to pet, hold, and play with lemurs I got to finally see a fennec fox in real life that wasn't some persons slave animal I got to play with a monkey who ended up stealing an earring out of my ear and playing with it I got to PLAY WITH KANGAROOS I got to feet these enormous camels, and other dromedaries There was even more than that, however it's been a few months and I am still just overwhelmed by all of the... OH WAIT A SECOND I REMEMBER NOW the MOST AMAZING part of the day: They had a caracal cat, whom they had raised from a kitten. So this cat, that was around 28lbs thought it was a house cat... however it is/was not. It was so amazing to get to hang out with, pet, and play with a cat that is larger than many dogs are!!!! They also had sloths, snakes, lizards, pigs, tortoises, horses, cows, mean ostrich (who taste good) and many, many other amazing animals.. KOOKABURRA.... oh I can't even list everything I got to see, play with, and learn about within several inches to feet from my face (along with hold, pet, and play with). You MUST see them, and support them if you are able to. Truly. This whole hullabaloo about their bathroom facility is just such a shame... I went and washed my hands in there and I had no issue with it. These are clearly people who care deeply about the animals and what they do. Roos-N-More is a memory I will take with me to the grave.
