The Zoo has several ponds and artificial lakes, are birds, reptiles, mammals, most of the representative fauna of South America. It is a great pleasure tip to enjoy with family.

This zoo is nice. You'll find many kinds of wild animals. I've seen some birds that I've never saw before.

There i saw a lot of animals i have never seen before (also, was my first time in brasil) but the facilities are poor and the animals seem to suffer. Also, be careful what you eat from the cantines, i was sick for one week from eating a pastel

We were thrilled with the animals, and the environment, I think this is a good place for children to see and learn about animals

Bring good walking shoes. The space is very open with some small hills. Many interesting animals and birds from across Brazil. A good stop for families.

This zoo is not very good. The number of species is limited and and the local species are underrepresented.

I love the zoo, I have been there many times. It is very big and there is a lot of spaces for picnics. There are a lot of animals. I suggest you take a hat and a lot of sunscreen, we tend to walk a lot.
