I'm not sure what the other reviewers are looking for... I have been staying in Montpellier every summer for a number of years, but this fall was the first time that I ventured out to the zoo (even though it isn't all that far away). I liked it enough that I went 3 times, twice paying for admission to the Amazonian rainforest exhibit.
Yes, there is a lot of walking, but that's not a negative! In the fall, the zoo was incredibly quiet and peaceful, even though it is located fairly close to some busy roads. The zoo itself has a fair number of animals for a zoo of its size. The nature preserve that is part of the complex allows for walking, running, etc.
As for the signs, I'll agree that this could be improved. It's not always easy to find exactly what you're looking for. However, I also found it to be great fun just to walk along and discover what was ahead and to try to navigate using the supplied directional signs.
Personally, I enjoyed the fact that the animals were in a somewhat naturalistic setting. I liked walking along and discovering an enclosure that housed one (or several) species and being able to just stand and observe for as long as I wanted. Giraffes, wolves, bears, otters, monkeys, rhinos, lions, numerous species of birds, and other animals too numerous to name. Lots of baby animals born in the spring and summer.
I found it delightful...
