There was alot of walking but alot of animal interaction. I was a little dissappionted in the variety and my granddaughter got easily bored, but she has been to other zoos that were more "updated". The workers were very nice and it was clean though.

This was such a sad experience! The animals look sick and they are in terribly small cages. The staff was rude and arrogant. I hope someone does something to help these animals!!!
