I was brought to the zoo as a surprise anniversary gift due to fact of my love for animals. I absolutely loved the experience. I'm positive I'll be back soon to visit the animals I didn't get the chance to see. It was an inexpensive, enjoyable time. Thanks so much!

My son (age 6) and I had a blast visiting your zoo yesterday! It was well worth the drive to see all the exotic animals most zoos don't even have! My son loved the baby goats the most. They were just the sweetest little creatures to pet. I loved the variety of critters and how friendly the staff was. I have never seen a zonkey before! Thanks to Jim for all the information and we can't wait to visit again next year! Next time we will bring a picnic lunch and plan on spending more time there.

We just returned from our 2nd field trip to Little Ponderosa Zoo. It, as always, was a GREAT experience. The students enjoyed the variety of animals available. We were even fortunate enough to see some baby goats being born! Pony rides and feeding the animals made the experience even better. Thanks to James and all the Little Ponderosa Zoo Staff. You made this another wonderful trip for our students at Central Elementary.

I have always enjoyed animals, thanks for a great time at the ponderosa. I will be back and hope to see more the next time I visit. The zoo is so big it's hard to see all the things on one visit. Everyone must go a second time, besides there may be something new.
