This is not really a so in the traditional sense. It is a farm replica, with many local wild animals and birds. Kids can get close to suburban type critters like raccoons, fox, deer, and many birds along with pigs, goats, cows and horses. Even had a llama.
Cosley Zoo has always been a favorite of our family. It is perfect for the toddler thru early elementary grades. I was reminded of this when we drove by over the weekend and my grandson said as we passed Cosley "I love small Zoos!"
