Great place to view many species of exotic wildlife. Fossil Rim is a great conservation success story for many endangered species, including the White Rhino, Addox and Mexican Red Wolf. Well worth the admission.
My twin girls love animals and they were locked in the whole trip. They got a kick out of feeding the animals, especially the giraffes. This will be a repeat trip, for sure.
Do the guided tour. It is well worth the money.

Park is decent but not exceptional. Animals are plentiful with decent variety to impress kids and those who have not been to a larger park or the real thing. Spacing between vehicles in the PM became an issue.

Hi! My husband and daughter and I were there yesterday (Sunday 11/11/18) and went on the afternoon Behind-the-Scenes tour. All the giraffes except the big male, Mosey, were in their enclosure which is heated. But Mosey was more than willing to come take our food pellets! The baby rhinos and their moms were also in their enclosures because of the cold. The other animals were all out, and very willing to come to the cars and tour vans travelling through.
