“Great find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We went here to find the "Golden Frog" which you can see behind glass. The other frogs and toads however are also worth the trip. The grounds are well kept and there are many other animals worth a view.

“Cruel, Below Standard Enclosures”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Typical third world zoo where locals collect animals and birds and stick them in unsuitable cages. Some of the larger animals had insufficient room to act like animals and often were on concrete. Cleanliness left a lot to be desired. Have nothing to say about feeding. Most modern zoos eliminated such unnatural conditions decades ago.

“poor animals”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

this is a small local zoo....i feel sorry for most of the animals that live there. it seemed to me the plants had better care than the creatures behind the fences. i wanted to set them all free!

“Poor animal accomodation”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

The number of different birds and animals was great but the quality of their cages was terrible for more than 50 %. Concrete floors for animals that normally live in the jungle??

“A very nice local zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

It is not like a big city zoo, has a nice assortment of animals and birds. The frog exhibit is especially interesting.
