Large animal enclosures with lots of enrichment opportunities. Well cared for and beautiful animals. Staff was super friendly especially the ticket taker at the front. Skip the steam train, Oakland zoo's is better.

A great place with exotic animals/ birds from various continents. The place looked well maintained and was a pleasure to visit when it was not too crowded on a week day.
