Enclosures for animals way to small. No water in any of the large cat or bear enclosures. Two different breed bears in one enclosure with one chasing and knocking the other around. Animals all looked miserable. Couldn’t stand to stay here and see these animals...More

The petting zoo was OK, it's about what you would expect. But the rest of the enclosures where sad and depressing. There were many enclosures that despite having animals advertised as being there, where either temporarily shut down, or there was just nothing in them....More

We always go to the zoo when we go to Panama City. This time was no exception. Even though we didn't have children with us we enjoyed it immensly anyway.

We didn't feel the sloth experience was worth the money. It is $35 each and no you don't get to hold it, just touch it. The lemur experience is totally worth it. They are sweet and you get to hold and pet them while the lady... More
