What our visitors say ...

Whoa! I come from the Chicago Zoos where animals are far away, behind glass, and easier to see with binoculars! I would probably have a better time seeing animals on a Nat Geo documentary. 
However, we stumbled upon THIS AMAZING ZOO!  Giraffe Feeding: This would have cost a fortune in Chicago and probably cost $50 if even available. It was amazing here. Pet a giraffe and feed one! Stay as long as you want!!

For a small zoo this one is excellent.  The staff was great with the animals and it is the perfect size zoo for a afternoon visit.  We took our time and went through most of it in a couple hours.  Seriously though we will come back every time.   Thank you for such a lovely little zoo on the gulf!!
