We saw a lot of cute and nice animals! The polar bears seemed to just pace in one routine back and forth which indicates mental stress. But thats how it is with zoo animals in Zoos. However we saw baby giraffes and adult giraffes from...More

We visited the zoo today and whilst they did have quite a number of animals, the cages appeared to be a bit unkempt. We felt that the cages could do with a good clean which really put a dampener on the afternoon.
