While this is not the San Diego Zoo, this was definitely worth the trip. Pay the extra to visit the aquarium while you are there. A lot of the enclosures were obviously designed 50 years ago when thoughts about the animals' welfare was less of a concern than being able to put the animals on display. The upside is that you get to see a lot of the animals. The downside is that several look miserable in their cages. But, its worth checking out. Oh yeah, and they have pandas.

If you're going to the aquarium, go through the zoo as fast as you can. Otherwise don't even bother coming. It reminds me of Moscow zoo from the 80s...tiny enclosures, steel everywhere, very poor upkeep, animals looking underfed. They even split up the chimps into solitary confinement. Don't give them any of your money!

I felt very bad after our trip to the zoo. I saw that the polar bear was really restless and was very weak probably because of extreme hunger. He was constantly walking to and from the door where I assume the food is given. The elephants are also emaciated. Very poor condition for the animals. There were more street sweepers here than animal care takers... actually there was not even one care taker!

The zoo had some really cool animals! We saw the panda's, polar bears, giraffes, bears, tigers and the rare white tigers. Was great fun to see the animals but would definitely question the welfare standards in some of the enclosures, primarily the Panda one.
