What a fun thing to do. First the butterfly display was wonderful! It was a very warm day, and the animals were just taking it easy. Loved seeing the wild cats, camels, zebras, etc. Just plain fun!!

We love going to this zoo, feeding Ducks, Goats and deer. Butterfly house is also very good. Miss the elephant though. Ducks in center pond are the best part - as my son says !
