    This is the best small town zoo I have been too in a long time. The grounds were beautifully kept with lots of big old trees providing great shade. The exhibits were great; a huge variety of animals to see. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We even had a grounds keeper telling us all about the ostrich, who was quite the show-off (the ostrich, not the grounds keeper…). Fantastic experience, one of Pueblo’s best activities. I would highly recommend it!

    Only locals would call this a great zoo. Visit some on the east coast for comparison.

    Went to see the “Electricritters” Christmas display. Very well done, and the staff and volunteers were extremely friendly and helpful.

    I recently (12/28/2009) visited the Pueblo Zoo after a 15+ year absence and I must say that I was quite impressed. The winter exhibits made a strong attempt to highlight animals found in Colorado-which makes sense given the colder temperatures. The herpetarium, now known as The World of Color, showcases a considerable number of reptiles and amphibians. Perhaps the most impressive exhibits are those of the river otters and African penguins. According to the staff, the zoo is an active breeding center used to promote a Species Survival Plan for this penguin. Further, I found the staff’s knowledge in general to be thorough, accurate, and educational. Unfortunately, Monkey Mountain is no longer accessible due to this age of litigation in which we live. Still, what a great little zoo! Go and treat yourself to this very affordable and educational experience!
