This was really fun untik we got yelled at for petting a pea cock. At the beggining of the zoo, it said feel free to pet all animals, he was such a jerk, on the other hand, had lunch there with the fam and it was yummyβœŒοΈπŸ”πŸ πŸ‹πŸ„πŸ€πŸƒπŸ…πŸ‡πŸ‰πŸπŸŽπŸ“πŸ•πŸ–πŸπŸ‚πŸ²πŸ‘πŸŠπŸ†πŸ©πŸ’πŸŒ·πŸŒ΄πŸŒΊπŸŒ»πŸŒΉ

I have been to Staten Island Zoo a few times. It's a small, cute little zoo and is great place to if you have little kids. Tickets are fairly cheap and there is food court available. I went with my husband and it it not all that for adults.

It's nothing to write home about but it's a cute place for very young kids. There's a small petting zoo with a some farm animals.

The Staten island zoo is a very manageable size. But it has great exhibits and one of the best zoos for snakes in NY. We had a very pleasant few hours wandering around

The Staten Island Zoo is a very nice place, worth a visit. All he animals there seemed very well cared for and healthy. I was really impressed with the Python, for its size and beauty. The reptile area is lovely, so is the aquarium. The place was almost empty because of the cold weather, which made the visit a lot... More

The SI zoo is the perfect way to spend a day with your family, particularly if you have younger children. It's not too big to walk, and they have interesting animals there, such as kangaroos and leopards. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and they have pony rides for the kids there.

The zoo is very small but it has a smattering of different animals, bird, fish, etc. Very pleasant and enjoyable for small children. The main attraction is a pair of leopards that are very lively and entertaining.
