    A Great Zoo that deserves more attention!

    The Jacksonville Zoo is a real Gem for the city. I had visited the city many times but had never gotten to the Zoo. I wish I had seen it earlier.

    The Zoo has the full Spectrum of Animals and they were building a rather large Jaguar exhibit that looked promising.

    Some of the pathways are elevated boardwalks which helps with spotting the animals. They have a great exhibit on local wildlife as well.

    For the kids, they have a pretty good petting zoo and the walk in bird exhibit is a riot.

    Feeding the birds

    This is a nice Zoo, they have a lot of animals. I liked feeding the birds. You can buy (for like a dollar) a cup of nectar, and you walk into this area full of birds, and they come up to you and eat the nectar from your hand.

  • Stingray Exhibit at the Jacksonville Zoo

    The Sting Ray Exhibit is awesome, especially if you have kids. My kids loved it. They got to not only see the stingrays, but pet them as well. One note - you have to pay an additional fee to see this exhibit.

    We live in the area and go to this zoo often. On this particular trip, the rhinos were fighting and the jaguar was out and active. It seems like every time we go, you get to see something new. You can see all of these animals and more in our "Our Day at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens" at http://www.armadillopepper.com. Click on the "Fun Stuff" link.
