    Pretty small zoo, and nothing too exciting unfortunately.

    Huge zoo right next to the California coast. All the exhibits are excellent. The new wolf enclosure was just okay. Very clean, well organized, and overall a top zoo in the country

    Nice zoo, but several areas look abandonded or are fenced off by ugly tape/ construction walls.

    It's a weird little place. A lot of the buildings are in need of serious repairs. It's kinda fun though, lots of great animals to see.

    Watch out for the aggressive sea gulls at the food courts--they'll grab your pizza slice in a hot second if you're not on guard!

    But a membership and see the animals at different times of day and during different seasons. Animals have moods. I have mixed feelings about zoos but the anteater and giraffes always seem chilled out

    Overall layout. It seems large, most animals seem have a lot of room. Negative is one polar bear died last week. The remaining polar bear seems sick. Make sure to bring warm clothes!!

    If you have kids, a membership is a must-have. There is a new playground, way towards the back, that is huge.
