Great day at the zoo with many animals. Kids and parents liked the park. Not very tourist-friendly as shows and some signs were in portugues only. But nice summer mood.

You have the opportunity to take a picture with a sealion and tropical birds after specified show times. Of course, the petting (children's) zoo area is also available. The rest would be from the fence that separates you.
