The zoo is a cool enough place to visit during the day, but most of the time the nocturnal animals are more or less lethargic when the sun is out. However, as soon as the sun sets and the stars begin to shine these animals activate and their natural instincts take over. The park has over 160 animals on display, and more than half of the animals are nocturnal or crepuscular, which means guests are in for a show. The sights and sounds from these night creatures that will undoubtedly bring about ooohs and aaahs from the patrons on tour.
