All types of animals are seen here. Some of them are very unusual. There is also a restaurant attached to it called the Bears Den where they feed the bears in a compound just off of the patio of the restaurant.

Yes, just skip the presentations in the pavilion area that are on snakes. Catch the meet and greet on lemurs, instead of the ones on snakes or reptiles.
