The zoo is well laid out and there is much to see here. For adults, maybe not. I have seen most of these animals in the wild.

This small zoo has a wonderful collection of animals. The first thing you see when you enter the gate are 2 gorgeous wolves romping around in their hilly enclosure. The zoo is nicely laid out with scenic enclosures for the critters. It does not take...More
