    Good big animals. However was upset that tram was out, or the ride to the farm family wasn't functioning either.

    Penguins, seahorses, and starfish were my favorite. My daughter's first trip to the zoo and she had a blast! I was so surprised at how much there was to do at the zoo in the winter. Great place!

    The tigers can be interestingly creepy and fun. They kept pacing back and forth near the visitors. Maybe they're thinking that we're dinner.

    Did you know? The zoo's Asian wild horse breeding program has helped bring the species back from the brink of extinction. Herds descended from a Minnesota Zoo stallion are thriving in the wild!
