Many of the animals are kept in small enclosures with concrete floors, nothing like their natural environments. The lemur literally hung off the bars and cried at us. Very few of the enclosures seemed to have live trees. It is a fun experience, but I don't feel like the animals were very happy to be there especially compared to other zoos I have seen.
I live in minot and everytime i go to the zoo with my family when they come to town it is a fun event. There is a wide selection of animals and the price of admission is also a good deal. The zoo is clean and the atmosphere is wonderful.
