I've been to zoos that are supposedly better, but this zoo was really fun.
For us, the best part was that you can interact with the animals! They sell animal food that is approved by the zoo vets--we bought the bucket, which was the perfect amount of food for our visit--and then there are basically four kinds of animals: 1) animals roaming free around the zoo that want your food; 2) animals that are in cages but you can feed them by hand through holes in the cages; 3) animals that have feeder chutes so that you can feed them in their cages from a few feet away; and 4) a few animals that have a different diet and you can't feed them the animal food.
Almost all of the animals can eat the zoo food, and they almost all want it. Some notable exceptions are the wild cats--we almost wished we would have brought steak with us! The cats were not the least bit interested in our alfalfa pellets or biscuit things.
Feeding the monkeys was really fun! They're one of the animals that have chutes that you can use to slide food to them. Some birds hang out in between where the people can stand and the monkey cages, so if you aim the little biscuits right, the monkeys will reach through and grab them off of the chute thing before the birds can get to it. But the birds are fast! But so are the monkeys! Or, you can try to toss the biscuits in to the monkeys' cages, and if you make it in they will race to retrieve it, and if your biscuit hits one of the bars then you're feeding birds. It's a really exciting game. There are some fun social dynamics with the monkeys, too, like, we saw the baby kind of look to its mom for permission to eat the food we threw in.
Another animal I loved to feed was the zebra. I had never fed a zebra before!
Also, the capyburas running around the zoo were such a surprise, and really fun.
We wished the bears had been awake, and that the orangutan had been doing more, but other than that there was really nothing to complain about. It was really exciting. We loved it!
