  • Where to start... A couple walks into a zoo - the only animal in the entire zoo is a dog. It's a shitzu!!! For anyone who says this place is "wonderful" or "amazing" must not have had the pleasure....  more »
  • What a great trip! It doesn’t get much better than looking at the well-cares for animals AND feeding many of them. Who doesn’t love feeding small goats, deer,ducks, donkeys, lamas and more?!  more »
  • We went for a field trip with my son's second grade class and it was great! All of the worker's were so friendly and helpful. The ladies that showed some of the animals to the class were so informative and great at explaining everything to a room full of hyper 2nd graders. I actually liked it more than the Knoxville zoo because it's not as crowded and the worker's are more hands on and will talk to you and explain things about the animals. Yes it's definitely smaller than the Knoxville Zoo, but if you're looking for a day of seeing awesome animals and learning about them and not being crowded by a bunch of people then this is definitely the place to go! I highly recommend checking it out!
  • We visited for our sons 2nd birthday and all of us LOVED it!!! We had my sister-in-law and her family join us and all of us enjoyed the interactions with the animals and the kindness of the entire staff!!! The special treat of our son being allowed to pick a Peacock Feather or Porcupine Quill for his birthday surprise was beyond a wonderful addition!!! We will be back, many many times. HIGHLY recommended, if I could give a billion stars, it wouldn't be enough!!!
