One of the coolest parts of the Zoo was the ability to feed some of the animals! Great variety of species, and very informative signs and pathways!

Even though the Brevard Zoo it is very nice. The animals seem to be well treated. The staff had always been friendly. If you have a few hours free it is worth the trip.

Like your animals at home who are active when they wake up in the morning and usually settle down for a nap mid-afternoon, so too do our animals. We recommend visiting anytime between when we open (9:30 a.m.) until 2 p.m.
