Fun being a kid again and seeing all the animals. Best time is evening during the summer months. Lots of cool animals. Camel rides if you would like. Otters are great fun to watch and the big cats are awesome!

Rife with school kids, Mom's with strollers, and animals in hiding and some exhibits not available. Giraffe area was good and loved the gorgeous wandering peacocks.
