Isn't the zoo supposed to have animals? I felt ripped off. It's like all the animals were taken back for 3 hour feedings at the same time or something. I saw a monkey, a lot of them actually but not a lot of anything else. I think if they are going To remove the animal they should maybe post a sign or something so we know when they'll be back. I'm not a
Local so it's not like i can just
Go back another day. I was bummed, I love zoos and was really looking forward to it. But I did get a really good chicken lettuce wrap at one of the cafe's there....

Good range of animals. Tropical area impressive. Some of the animals seemed cramped ie. tigers, bear enclosure also small and outdated. New area for elephant open in June 2012.

The Denver zoo has SO MUCH to see and do.Now that they have renovated alot of it,it is VERY nice.Inside the zoo they have tropical discovery(skip the Denver aquarium,this is MUCH better)

What alot of people do not know,if you are with someone disabled,the disabled person and there "escort" get in for a reduced price.

Best time to go is in the afternoon(during the school year)
