We had read the reviews and weren't sure if this waas going to be good. It is a nice zoo for the money. Wooden walk ways take you through the zoo, it gives you a feel of being closer to the animals and birds and even the insects. The aviaire feeding area was fun the birds all flock to you to get the food. Great photo opp there. Early morning is best time to see the animals, later they staying out the sun. Staff is friendly and informative. Food and drinks are resonably priced. A break for taking a family there.

Stopped by when visiting Cocoa Beach (20-25 minute drive) and spent about 4 hours seeing all the various animals and exhibits. No real need to purchase the 'extras' at the gate, you can always add them inside when you come to them. The kayak tour was pretty cool though. If you choose to 'feed the birds' (only a dollar) be ready to have multiple birds landing on you and eating from your hand.
