We love this zoo! It has to be the cleanest zoo I've ever been to. We love the way it is divided into continents, with native species exhibited. Raised boardwalks take you from habitat to habitat. And the patrons can actually feed the giraffes! You are on a high platform and they walk right up to you and take the food directly out of your hand! They also include bird feeding, where you enter the exhibit, purchase a reasonably priced amount of food and the birds come to you! Just some of the interesting animals you'd see on a trip includes red wolves, kangaroos and wallabies, white rhinos, coatimundi, and jaguars.

Brevard Zoo was part of our quartely field trip after we got the membership. The giraffes were the best for me, so close that if you don't move fast enough you could get a kiss from them. We and our children learned from this place, so check them out!
