A Google User I came from the minnesota and am use to a big huge crouded animals galore zoo but coming here i realized that this zoo in Alaska can't have zebras, giraffes, elephants etc because of the cold. Its not healthy for them to be up here. They mainly help injured animals. They are more active earlier in the day.
A Google User I love this zoo and go here often. There are lots of idiots that go here from big citys. They like to complain about everything. Well, I got a piece of advice for ya.... This is Alaska and if you don't like it go home. Most of the animals living at the zoo are there because they were injured and could no longer live in the wild. It's not the kids throwing coffee cup lids I'm worried about. I'm worried about the "adults" acting like children at the zoo. Most people that come visit Alaska put this idiot hat on, shove their head in the sand, and wonder why they leave injured or close to death. Most of these animals are crepuscular. It means that they are more active in the morning and early evening. If you can't get your lazy but up early enough or have to hit the bar too early you probably won't see much. I hope this helps those of you that expect a big city zoo on a petting zoo budget.
