worth to visit and I think it is a must do for families with children. Animals are healthy and feel like they are free. there is no cage and each animal has enough space.

I've only been to San Diego Zoo, LA Zoo and this one. This one is definitely my favorite. You can get so close to the animals, and some even wander the grounds. We had a great time, definitely worth the visit.
