Butterfly exhibit with lots of Monarchs and Painted Ladies. Lions, tigers and wallabys! Lemurs and reptiles. Big enough to spend a few hours but not too big to be overwhelming. We enjoyed our visit.

I was very disappointed with this zoo. The animals are in very small confinements and a number of the attractions are empty. Honestly in my opinion its not worth the $10.00 to enter.More
