I have been several times to Sharkarosa. It's a fun little zoo but kind of expensive. I understand all the money goes directly back to the zoo but I usually don't go unless I have a discount or groupon.

We had a great time getting to see all of the animals. We bought a couple bags of the feed and the kids enjoyed feeding those they were allowed to.

Wonderful place to see and interact with many different animals. If you can afford it, buy the opportunity to interact with the lemurs in their enclosure. They are fantastic. Staff are great and you can explore at your own pace.

Yes, just skip the presentations in the pavilion area that are on snakes. Catch the meet and greet on lemurs, instead of the ones on snakes or reptiles.
