When you visit the zoo you'll find a welcome plaza as soon as you pass through the main entrance gate. You can find public restrooms and a first-aid station nearby...so I suggest you visit the restroom before moving on throughout the zoo.
After we were done there we headed to the Northern Trek area and spent about 30 minutes visiting that area before we headed down to the Waterfowl Lake area. If you love birds that live near water, you'll really enjoy this exhibit. Since I'm a coastal lover, we spent some time here just watching all of the waterfowl eat and play in and near the water.
When you visit, some of the animals you will see are: anteater, grizzly bear, sloth, gorilla, otters, flamingo, elephants, tigers, cheetah, camels, zebra, dingo, deer, donkeys, hedgehog, giraffes, koalas, lion, lemurs, orangutans, ostrich, red panda, python snake, sheep, sharks, storks, swans, various turtles, numerous different types of birds, wolves, various fish species and so much more! Trust me, this zoo has a really nice variety!
