Small zoo but cool animals. Saw the tigers being fed. Go and support the animals. Saw friendly staff taking care of many of the animals.

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

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
