We were taken there by friends and enjoyed our visit, however this is a small zoo without any exhibits you would not see anywhere else.

This little zoo with mainly aquatic animals (but some other too) is very nice. If you're lucky you'll be able to attend the feeding of some animals. And some you can even feed yourself! Be sure to take some 50 cent coins for the feeding...More
