    I will agree with one of the other comments, some of the enclosures are too small. Specifically they have a baby Arctic Fox that was in a 3x5 foot enclosure and it could have even been slightly smaller than that. But the baby fox was seeming to have fun playing with the toy that was in the enclosure. When we went all of the animals were awake except the tiger. They all seemed healthy and the enclosures were clean. Knowing it was a small zoo I wasn't disappointed. I would recommend this place to everyone. It's a cute zoo and you get to feed most...Read More

    Horrible. We walked in and left 10mins later because the condition of the animals. Their "habitats" (cages) are disgusting, the animals do not have even HALF of the space they need, it was very saddening. Most are very overweight and losing hair, you can tell they never get exercised or the attention they need and are VERY under-stimulated. Some of the cages were overwhelmed with feces. We felt so bad for these animals, it ruined our whole day. Animals, whether they are rescues or not, deserve better treatment than this. They need much bigger HABITATS...Read More

    per person! Many of the animals were "asleep", they were no where to be seen!!! The "restroom" consisted of two side by side portapottys. Not adequate at all in my book to wash your hands after being around and feeding misc. animals. A total ripoff.

    This is a charming private zoo, showing high attention to the welfare of the animals. Many of them are rescues from unfit homes, pay the entrance fee gratefully and don't whine,

We felt so bad for these animals, it ruined our whole day. Animals, whether they are rescues or not, deserve better treatment than this. They need much bigger HABITATS (not just wire cages), more attention and exercise. These animals sleep all day to escape their poor miserable lives.
