This small zoo, which gained fame for its part in the animated movie Madagascar, is home to penguins, snow leopards and lemurs. Feeding times in the sea lion (11:30am, 1:30pm and 3:30pm) and penguin tanks (10:30am and 2:30pm) make for a rowdy spectacle. Check the website for times. The attached petting zoo, Tisch Children’s Zoo, is perfect for small children – especially the animal feeding from 10am to 2pm. Admission covers both zoos.
