  • I loved being able to buy food and feed the animals. I love that they are very protective of their animals and treat them like family. Watching the bears eat entire watermelons was a lot of fun. Watching tigers swim in their own pond was fascinating.
  • Great zoo. Cattie and Bud are superb. Great with children. Not too many zoos where you get to pet a baby wolf, or a kangaroo, or sloth. Help feed the bears. Highly recommend.
