Decided to visit while we were in Denver and had a spare day. They have so many animals and lots of information about each. Also a timetable with shows that are on for the day.

High winds and chill tried to dampen our enjoyment, but plenty to see and enjoy. #1 thrill was an elephant diving into and underwater, and just enjoying himself no end. Many great species to see. Loved it.
