Horrible, cramped living condtions for some reptiles (especially the Ball Python.) It's appalling. No room for some to move around at all. I left as soon as I saw this. Extremely depressing and dissapointing. I've contacted HSUS and the Virginia Zoo. There is no excuse for this cruelty.

a huge plus about the zoo is that there is plenty of space. that is a BIG plus for me now that i am starting to get back into working out, masha-Allah. I grew up here and back then there were alot more animals, that is what they need now. The zoo changed its look which is pleasing to the eye and also the atmosphere for the lions. They have a water area for them with a little bridge, very nice touch. The food as always is very high. Oh, they have a water fountain in front of the entrance where the children can run and do. My daughter liked that part.

This zoo could have more animals, but its tradeoff is it has a tremendous amount of space. It has beautifully kept grounds, and you can walk for hours here. Hopefully, over time, they will acquire more animals, because they have the space.

My kids really enjoyed our trip to the zoo. We go to the zoo in pretty much every city we have gone to, but they stilll found this one very enjoyable. The exhibits are set up for interactive fun (and learning with the kids) and they had the opportunity to run around and play without disturbing all of the other visitors and the animals. We took a hit in the gift shop (of course) and the food is somewhat pricey, but that is to be expected at a place like this. Pick a nice day (but not too hot - there is shade, but it still gets toasty) and have a great time.

I had a season pass last year and we went many many times. Its the perfect size for my young kids. They could enjoy the whole zoo and not get too tired. Running through the water at the end was always a special treat. The animals are wonderful. We got to learn some of their stories from talking to the caretakers.
