They have made so many improvements since my last visit! They have done so much to modernize the zoo. The new elephant and tiger exhibits are fantastic! Animals and their areas were kept clean and most were pretty active (the exception being the snow leopard). Their baby elephant Zuri has even learned some little tricks that she shows when she's in the mood :) (I went back again and the second time she didn't feel like performing/was distracted by a log so they just threw her a treat to say "thanks anyway" laughed it off and talked about their how their training methods differ at the zoo) Their new Rocky Shores Exhibit is also great. They have a new polar bear there with a HUGE tank to swim around in as well as some roaming room. Both times we visited she was having fun doing flips and twists in the water. She seems to like to pop up at the glass and surprise the children :) They have some reasonable priced food options near the elephant exhibit as well.

Especially with the new Rocky Shores exhibit, Hogle Zoo has upgraded the look and feel of the zoo tremendously. We have an annual pass so taking the grandkids is a joy, one that they treasure.

had a friend who worked there several years ago, so was interested in the new displays, new animals. Since she doesn't work there, but is still interested in zoo activities, I keep up with what is going on, but live in Ogden and don't go to SLC very often, so consequently, have many things to do and the zoo is not one of them
