Even though I live close to the zoo, each time is exciting and the park is so huge I get a ton of exercise while seeing beautiful things and animals. Would recommend and will be going back soon.

This is a yes/no situation. Sometimes they are very close to the small pond that separates them from the waist high railing. You can get great photos there. If they are being fed then they are at the back of the exhibit.
