So worth the visit! Spent hours meandering through the desert and exhibits. There's a variety of desert animals in open air exhibits from javelinas to porcupines to reptiles to birds to mountain goats. I especially loved the hummingbird aviary.

I know they have guided tours but I think it's more fun to walk and learn at your own pace.

I really love our beautiful zoo. I love the care and love that the wonderful people working there give to the animals.
