did this just as "something to do", and now realize what a shame it would have been if we had missed the opportunity. not your typical zoo. great staff and you are pretty darn close to animals you would have seen in the wild before we two legged animals moved in. don't miss this, especially if you have kids along (although just as interesting for adults). try to get there in the mid morning when the bears are tearing into breakfast. awesome!
