    Baby Hippo is adorable! Lots of construction and continued to hit dead ends, but we had a lovely time. We were able to dick in and out of indoor exhibits between rain storms.

    Amazing selection of animals! Great price for entry. Nice pavilion and lawn for picnics. Parking lot not so great and streets leading to Zoo are confusing. Worth a stop while in Albuquerque!

    Getting a Bio Park membership is an amazing deal. Nothing like unlimited zoo (and aquarium/garden) access!

    Don't forget to bring quarters to buy food so the kids (big & small) can feed the ducks and fish. Lots of fun!

    Great zoo, especially for the price. Even though some animals were off exhibit or docile, it was worth the price.

    Zoo Boo today from 11am to 4pm. Come out and help Raise Money to feed the animals and get your picture taken with a Star Wars character or other Super hero character...

    Great zoo and a fantastic open grass area to let the kids run wild. Great exhibits too. Go in the Morning to miss the crowds and heat

    Don't miss the seals and sea lions. Great display and it's a nice shady spot to get out of the heat.
