    This is a nice little zoo and was better than my expectations. My family had been here several times, but I had never gone. It is a very small zoo, but I guess that is part of the appeal; you aren't surrounded by thousands of people. We went on Father's Day and for me, my wife and two kids it was in the neighborhood of $5 to get in. Not bad for a couple hours worth of entertainment.

    This place is pretty neat. The turtles were not shy about their public display of affection for each other.
