My first visit to the zoo. Very hot day but worth the trip. The variety of animals is amazing for a small zoo. Was lucky enough to have a chance to see both the male lion and the tiger up close as well as the giraffe. The lion gave a small roar and pawed at the glass. What a display! The tiger was moving around to find the best breeze. Enjoyed the "Walkabout" area. The people are confined to the path, the animals are free roaming. All the zoo staff were both knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely worth a trip, especially if you have children. Check the "keeper chat" schedule before going. You may want to plan the visit around a certain animal discussion. Not really big enough to spend the entire day so don't miss the chat you'd be most interested in.
