This park is big! It has just about every animal imaginable, as well as dinosaurs! The park employees are very nice and helpful, they give you lots of information about the animals and answer your questions. They have a butterfly house that has butterflies and lizard roaming free and it is beautiful. The rainforest is very pretty and has a nice variety of exhibits.
