Great little zoo, especially for the low admission price ($7 for adults, $6 for kids 13 and under, 2 and under are free). They have a decent variety of species, even some large carnivores.
You can tell that this is an educational environment because there were a lot of staff members from the EATM program who were on hand to answer questions. Everyone there was so friendly and informative. We got to see a hyena feeding/training session, which was really interesting. The staff member who was handling the hyena talked about the training techniques (apparently, this hyena had learned 75+ behaviors!), and she patiently answered my gazillion questions. 5 stars for the animals and 5 stars for the staff!
It is a very small zoo so don't expect to spend too much time there, but it's well worth it if you have an interest in animals and what it takes to care for them. According to the zoo, many of these animals can't be re-released into the wild, so it's nice that they can still contribute to their environment by helping the EATM staff teach others about their species. Highly recommended!
