Easy to get to, very affordable and just the right size. The otters and bald eagles were cool...why no bison?

Probably the smallest zoo I have ever visited. It takes 15 minutes to walk all the cages. Not a lot of variety of animal but kept pretty clean and neat. When I visited last summer, it was pretty much two of us in the entire zoo. There are peacocks gazing freely which we loved. Camels, wolves, ground hogs, ducks, eagles and 4-5 other animals. Again, it's Fargo and it gets pretty darn cold here, considering that the zoo staff has taken care of these animals well and kept the zoo neat and tidy which I appreciate. The ticket price can feel a little pricey when you just get to see a handful of animals.

This is a very nice little zoo. We were able to see pretty much everything in about 90 minutes. The exhibits are nicely designed. Highlights for us were the river otters and the wolves. Well worth visiting.
