There are giraffes, hippos, lions, zebras, jaguar, lots of deer..and on & on..Very brightly coloured flamingos..

I've always had mixed feelings about zoos, they are definitely a good way for many people to have the opportunity of seeing animals that they wouldn't be able to see in any other way.

If you are an animal lover this place is probably not for you. The animals are in small cages, often with little foliage or anything to amuse them. There is a fair amount of pacing backwards and forwards by tigers and big animals. Sadly none of the animals look happy and one really feels that the place could learn from... 更多

We visit this zoo every time we are in Merida. They have a nice little train ride around the park so you can quickly see what you will spend more time looking at as you walk. Children will enjoy this park, and it is very clean.
