We try to go each year. Its small, but theres a wide variety of animals. Wish habitats were bigger, animals dont all seem miserable. It gives local families a place to.go.to see a zoo. It gets you up close to them, so you can actually see them.

First time for me visiting this place. It is a small place compared to the north Carolina zoo or riverbanks zoo in sc. Saw the normal selection of animals. Had a lot of monkeys that u could feed peanuts to. All in all it was a good way to spend a couple of hours walking around looking at and taking... More

Although this is not a large zoo, it has lions and tigers and bears, oh my! It is more like an animal park than a traditional zoo. There are a number of monkeys and yes there was a camel, a giraffe, and a pair of peacocks. This is southeastern North Carolina so of course there was an alligator, snakes, ducks,... More

I knew someone that worked for this place for a very short amount of time. It may seem like the animals are taken good care of, but trust me they're not. This place is shadier than a guy who sales things from the trunk of his car. They don't follow correct procedure if an animal is sick or happens to... More

This place needs shut down for good. It's just a sad, sad place, and anyone who has any level of compassion for animals should stay far away from it.

I just moved here and I went to go take a look at this "animal park". I was appalled when I walked in and saw the conditions these animals lived in. There were many animals in tiny cages, with few companions or none and concrete floors. Many of the animals were in distress and it was heartbreaking. When you see... More

I have been to this Zoo three times and I consider it a really nice place to visit with your family or friends. I will give it 4.5,because the spaces are too small, but it could be possible that there isn't money. The zoo is clean and the animales are in good conditions and well taken care. The time to...

We live in Leland, and have passed this "sketchy" establishment several times thinking, "I've heard that place is very depressing...do we really want to go in?" Well, for today, it was a yes. We decided to go in and check it out. No, the staff weren't much on the southern hospitality side, but by the looks of their family zoo,... More
