I've definitely been to better zoos but this one is average. The zoo is big but a zoo is a zoo. I personally don't believe in keeping animals in zoos but it is what it is. Some enclosures seem too small to me but the general size of the zoo is not too bad. There are not very many species,... More

The Hogle Zoo has a wide range of species and they all appear healthy and well taken care of. The animals experience a lot of enrichment. For example, they are trained for husbandry behaviors and veterinary procedures. There is also a really cool bird show with many trained raptors in it. I went on a very beautiful summer day and...

Visited first thing in the morning on a weekday as the zoo opened. It was nice and quiet when it opened but school groups begun visiting an hour or so later and their excited behaviour scared some of the animals. Anyway, plenty of animals in outdoor and indoor closures and an awesome animal carousel. There are several rest rooms, plenty... More

I love all the improvements that have been made in the last few years. I miss the greater variety they had but you can tell the animals are much better of in their more natural open enclosures. The African Savannah is looking great especially now that the giraffes have acclimated to it. For months the giraffes wouldn't join the other... More
