  • I took my bride to meet and she loved it, it is a place that is very worth getting early and not having time to come back if you want to know everything, because the space is very large, with countless things to see, not to mention that each animal has habits at different times

  • I went on a pretty sunny day, and possibly many animals were hidden due to heat, besides others that were really absent for health reasons, so it was a little frustrating. Other than that, it was a very pleasant stroll, the space is good, there is a good diversity of species, the cages were clean and the animals looked well cared for. Highlight the butterfly, where you enter an environment full of butterflies and they fly around you. I felt just that there is a little more shops and kiosks, I felt very thirsty and had trouble buying water. A walk with children would be quite complicated in that direction.
