We had heard positive comments about this zoo. On our visit to northern Florida, we made a point to stop for a visit. It is quite expensive for seniors ($17 per ticket), so we thought we were going to see fantastic exhibits. The entire zoo...More

Will definitely need all day to cover the entire zoo. It was super hot when we were here so we didmt finish the whole zoo. We ate at a place that had Mexicanish food at very reaonable prices for a zoo.

There is a discount. The price would be $17.95 and you need some sort of military identification.
