Pros: experience the thrill of the wild

This place is immaculately kept as far as the lawns and gardens. I remember being a little kid and taunting the snow leopard. It really wanted to eat me. People really ARE the most dangerous animals in a zoo. Best zoo on the planet.

A good place to spend the day!

I love this zoo! There is a new Butterfly Exhibit that is incredible. The animals in the African Safari section are penned in such a way that you feel like they are within reach if you just stretch your hand out.
