Dont waste your time or money. Go to the zoo in Gulf Breeze Fla. These are idiots running ths animal farm. Mispronouced the species name of one of the animals when I asked about an animal. Hillbillys with to much money''''''''''
Well, in my words the zoo put me in a whole nuther world of harmony. I am just so greatful I decided to go this habitat. The scene of it all just made me want...to..CRY! I loved it soooo much. I wish I lived in one of the exibits, and be one of those gorgous gals cats. I can just see it right now. Oh, the joy. But, as you can see overall that zoo wazzz the BOM and I'll neve forget that grooss sand that was in my shoes or that stanky smell that was all over the park. No mater what I'll always love that zoo.
I dont think the animals have enough room. The animals seem so unhappy. You would think with all the TV and awareness and all the donations that they brag they have recieved, they could aleast give the animals more room,
This was my first visit to any Zoo and I am so glad my husband and I decided to go. The fact that this Zoo was on Animal Planet was not my only reason for wanting to go, I'm an animal lover at heart. I was very impressed at how clean and neat the Zoo was. The animals were very well taken care of and we enjoyed ourselves very much. You could not tell the place had gone through a hurricane that's for sure. They had baby tigers that were so adorable, they were asleep, it didn't matter they were still a joy to see! I wasn't crazy about the amphibian exibit but I didn't want to miss a thing. The admission price was reasonable, the gift shop was a little expensive but that's what they are there for right!!!
So if you love animals this is a great place to take your family and just enjoy being around these beautiful creatures. The Staff are to be commended for taking such good care of the Zoo and it's inhabitants. Good Job Folks and thanks for a wonderful visit!
I liked the zoo. But alot of the paths are made fromsand. There was sand all in my shoes! Yuck! The animals look depressed. They are cramed into little cages with about 3 or 4 more animals. There are not many animals. They get one species of animal and get like 20 of them!! Boring! Waste of time!!!
It was a Great time had by all!!! My grandson, 3 years old, had a wonderful time feeding the animals and so did my Father-in-law, 73 years old. He also commented that it was the cleanest and best kept zoo he had ever visited. That is an amazing statement considering the Hurricane almost wiped them out. My husband and I visited there in September 2004 and I was just horrified when we heard that the water was covering the zoo grounds. I did not expect to see the zoo in such Great shape myself. I know there have been some people working VERY hard to make it look so good. I encourage everyone to visit this zoo, it is the best Little Zoo in the South. You can tell the animals are well taken care of. My daughter and I were just amazed at the white Tiger, he was gorgeous. He followed us down the fence as we walked along. You just wanted to reach out and touch him. GOLD STARS for all the workers and caretakers there!!!

We had a wonderful time while visiting the zoo. It was as great as I hoped it would be. It was a down home zoo that is taken care of well. You can tell that the team has invested alot of time, heart and soul into the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast Zoo. The animals are happy and it reflects in their reactions to the visitors. I was glad we went and I can't wait to go back.
