WOW! I have to say that this is one of the best Zoo's that I have ever seen. Being the middle of Februry we expected to see very little but with the beautiful climate in Albuquerque all but he Parrots were out. The flock of Flamingos that greet you walked right up to us as we entered (I love Flamingos and have never seen them anywhere). The Polar Bears, Camels, Seals, Monkeys, Elephants, Giraffe, Zebras, Lions, Tigers...Amazing! Take the train to the Aquarium and Botanical Gardens. The kids Secret Garden is magical! And the Aquarium is great too, especially considering the size. A really fun day for two 50 year old kids from Ohio!
Pros: Range of animals, layout and ease of viewing, habitat
Cons: During the week in February, non of the snack bars were open
