On a whim we decided to visit the zoo. We were glad we did. The zoo was very nice for what i consider to be a smaller size zoo. Some of the highlights were the rhinos, the giraffe feeding, the american eagles and the lorikeet...More

Like your animals at home who are active when they wake up in the morning and usually settle down for a nap mid-afternoon, so too do our animals. We recommend visiting anytime between when we open (9:30 a.m.) until 2 p.m.
