Great variety of animals, most of which in decent sized enclosures. However, some enclosures were too small, especially the big birds of prey (eagles, condors etc). Also, didn’t like that a lot of animals had they’re inside areas locked throughout the day.

Interesting zoo with a lot of rare animals. We spend a good 2 hours there. We walked from the parking lot at the bottom and it is a long walk through the wood. If you come early you can park up hill at the zoo.
