  • Really kind of lame – it is only $4/person, but most exhibits were empty – not sure if animals were gone or inside because it was cold. Many exhibits leave you guess as to what animal you are...  more »
  • The Tiger cage is WAYY TOO SMALL , The Tiger was pacing back and forth which is a sign of stress , one of the smellest zoo's too with the fox dung around too , most of the animals are petting zoo...  more »
  • One of the spider monkeys was eating breakfast while holding onto a FROG!! We watched for 15 minutes and he was still holding onto that frog! The lions were putting on a vocal show like I've never heard before! It was a real joy! Not very big place but animals were happy and healthy!! No gift shop..
  • We have taken our family here several times. We love the fact that the animals are so much closer than a big Zoo. It seems like you can enjoy the animals better because you are closer to tham. We enjoyed our time at the Amarillo zoo. Loved the lions, tigers, and bears. It's small but nice. It took less than 2 hrs to see. The grounds were very neat and clean, and the keepers we're friendly.
