I enjoyed my visit to the zoo, particularly the deer in the petting area (especially the baby) and the birds. I was not impressed with the staff really, as they weren't the most friendly or attentive. The animals seemed like they were cared for, though,...More

We were disappointed at this zoo. The animals are all in cages and they are small. I felt saddened by this experience. Please look into this place before you visit. It maybe normal experience but I have never experienced animals kept in such small habitats...More

I felt guilty just being there. Poor animals in tiny spaces. Sick looking, over weight, lonely and bored. 32.00 for our family to enter and left after 30 mins. I hope our money goes to getting some space for the animals. Not even 50 types...More

A sad little animal collection out of the city to the west. It simply is not worth the trip unless one hasn't any other opportunity to see a few exotic animals.

I highly recommend this small zoo just north of Reno. They have a variety of interesting animals but even better, the staff has great stories about the animal personalities as well as standard zoo animal information. Interesting ones include hyenas (extraordinarily strange looking animals with...More

You know I enjoyed seeing the animals at this zoo but at the same time I wanted to free them all. They were all hot and looked dirty. I think they need to make different arrangements to keep the animals cool. I don't think laying...More

This is a great zoo just 20-30 miles north of Reno where non native animals have been brought to live. Great for the whole family.

I think it was $5 per entry. Not expensive.
