A great variety of animals! They seem well cared for and I am proud of them for rescuing these beautiful animals.

We always enjoy visiting the Gulf Coast zoo. In the summer they have animal excursions where you can play with lemurs, kangaroos and tiger cubs. It's a smaller zoo, but it is well maintained and the animals look cared for. If you are in the area and like zoo's I highly recommend this one.

We have been visiting this zoo for over 14 years now. This is a small roadside zoo that has taken in a lot of birds and tigers as well as many other animals. The new catch here is once you get inside you have to pay for the different animal encounters so don't jump into the first one you see.... More

Cute little zoo. The Kangeroo encounter was nice. Lots of tigers and a few other big cats. The enclosures allow for you to view the animals but a little small. My son enjoyed feeding and petting the goats and llamas.

I'm glad we went to the zoo but I don't know that it could be an all day activity. The pet encounters are neat. We did the Lemur Monkey's & Kangaroo's. The monkeys were fun but they may go to the bathroom on you (like they did my oldest daughter). The handler is there to clean it up with a... More

This zoo is so wonderful! Perfect for everyone! It's in a small area, so, you don't have to do a huge amount of walking to see everything, but, you still get to see and feed lots of cute animals....monkeys, birds, tigers, ducks, lions, lemurs, pretty much everything but giraffes, elephants, and rhinos. The price is great, and for an extra... More

There were a lot of animals there, but all the big cats were in pretty small areas and some of the primates were playing with old broken plastic water bottles. It seemed a little run down. We had fun feeding the animals. The kids had a good time and there were some animals that we'd never seen up close before,... More

The zoo was pretty small, the way they can say they have so many animals is because of all the birds. The animal exhibits aren't labeled very well. The Kangaroo encounter was worth the price, only $5 per person, and the reptile encounter was good too. If you add up all the encounters, it can become pricey. The Tiger encounter... More

You will see a variety of animals at this zoo not as many as you would a major city zoo, but pretty good for a local zoo. You can also pet and feed the animals. But it cost $ depending on the experience you want to have most are $5 a person to pet or have an encounter with, zoo... More

Our whole family went to "the little zoo that could" and loved it! While we were they we were told that the zoo has been destroyed by hurricanes several times and always rebuilds. It is definitely a small zoo, but you get a more up close and personal experience with most of the animals. We made a reservation (at an... More
