I've been to MANY zoos, but the Montgomery Zoo was quite good! The only recommendation I have is that don't go in the summer because it gets really hot and humid in Montgomery and there are not many trees to give shade. One nice thing is that there are some nice little sprinklers hanging from trees and they spray you with water when you walk by. I realized that I spent a lot more time near the sprinklers than at looking at the animals. Another bad thing about this zoo is that there are pretty much NO SIGNS. It's hard to walk around and not go to the same location over and over.
