Had a few extra hours and couldn't have picked a better stop. Great exhibits. Be sure to take the nature trail uphill (not stroller friendly) for more animals, exhibits and great Utica views. Unexpected memories!

The zoo has nothing exceptional to write home about. Many of the animals are North American animals that we can see in our own backyards.
