We will definitely be going back and telling everyone we know about this place! The animals are awesome and for a reasonable $5 per huge bucket of food you can feed them all! The zoo does smell a bit more intensely than your average zoo, but it is summertime and you are far closer to the animals than at other zoo's. The animals all seemed to be healthy and in good spirits, and appeared to be well adapted to being fed by patrons!
The negative reviews for this place seem to have all been written by people that didn't make it past the parking lot, which is pathetic, how can you know whether the food is good at a hole in the wall restaurant based on the curtains hanging in the window? If that type of thing will drive you away, then you are better off staying home and leaving the truly rewarding places in life to those that will appreciate them. If you think that you are going to get the Bronx Zoo, all to yourself, for less than half the price, well, good luck with that.
If you are looking for a great time for less than $20 and are willing to travel a bit, I can't think of anything better to do with a significant other or family than to plan a visit to this place.
One thing worth mentioning though, as the NUMEROUS signs indicate, all of the animals here have claws, or teeth, or hooves to defend themselves if they are threatened, and they will use them. My shorts were nipped by a dinosaur-pig-duck while following it and its mate a bit too closely on our way to see the kangaroos. It was easily placated by taking another, slightly longer path, past several other very cool animals, and we both went on our merry way to enjoy the rest of the afternoon, no harm no.................fowl.
