Part of the Albuquerque Biopark system, this is a world class zoo. The grounds are quite spacious and the exhibits are always being updated. Bring a picnic and enjoy the large shaded area that's perfect for the kids to run and play. I'd plan for the entire afternoon if you want to see everything. There are many regional animals here including lobos, mountain lions, road runners, and prairie dogs. But, I'd say the star of the show are the sea lions. We always enjoy our time here.
