Worth the stop during a scenic drive through the area.

Excellent little zoo in the middle of nowhere. I know that some people may find it unacceptable to have baby lions and tigers on display for photographs, but the animals were born... read more

They could have more signs telling you where to go, which direction and how many miles. We drove for about 5 miles on a back road, thinking we were lost but kept driving anyways and there it was in the middle of no where..... also they could use more animals.

had a nice variety of animals - some you could feed peanuts that you buy when getting your tickets - our girls favorite was the baby tiger - though if you wanted your picture taken with it (or a baby kangaroo) it was expensive. Only took about 1 to 1.5 hours to see.

We have made several visits to the Perry Wildlife Zoo and it is always a rewarding experience. There is always a few new animals and some "old-friends" on hand to delight children of all ages (even us sixty-somethings).
