Very nice zoo, well laid out. The best part (for us) was the aviary. The zoo sells food and the birds come and eat out of your hand. Great for kids!

Friendly and informative staff. The giraffe feeding station seems unique and it’s fun. The new dinosaur exhibit is well done and some of the animatronics are a bit scary. Well worth a visit if you are not on the beach.

It's obvious everyone working at the Brevard Zoo takes great pride in their work. From letting us hold a hermit crab to explaining the habits of alpaca, zebra and python, my husband, young son and I were very enlightened. Each exhibit was attended by not...More

The kayak tour was short (30 mins) and you had to stay in a straight line the whole time, but there were some amazing sights! We were able to see the giraffes, lemurs and other cool sights! Don't forget to watch the water! We saw...More
