Penguins just outside the Children's area
They have this web at the playground. It is super cute!
On select days you can watch the gators being fed.
On the weekends leading up to Easter they have Gorilla Easter egg hunts. It is hilarious!

Baby Wallaby in the Nursery

They have a dress up area in the bug house. Each outfit is a type of ant found in the colony.


Their gardens are very pretty


These were not all taken in one trip. We decided to get a season pass last year since we were living so close to the zoo. We went many times and know it very well. It is a beautiful zoo! If you are lucky enough to visit you should see the gardens, the children's zoo (feed the animals, pet the farm animals, play in the playground, see the penguins and see the nursery.), the bird house, the Manatees, feed the Giraffes, elephants, ride the train, and visit the reptile house. The gardens are at their best in spring or early summer, April through June.
