Bee Haven

The zoo itself is okay. Our family just got back from the SD zoo. No comparison. This zoo is small and packed with people that dont known how to smile..little ghetto. BUT most importantly, the zoo is SWARMING withe BEES. It's crazy. We brought our subway sandwiches in with us and a couple of soft drinks. The bees could smell them from a mile away. The bees swarmed on our food like flies on s',,t. Luckily none of w... view more

The zoo has been under construction for a while due to the new elephant exhibit (finally open, yay!), so I can only give it 3 stars at the moment because of some of the crowding. But overall this is a really nice zoo. The new elephant habitat is huge. The Red Ape Forest (orangutans) is a fantastic space with so many viewing opportunities. The zoo keepers are really knowledgeable and accessible, and they'll come out a... view more

This zoo is terrible

I have been to the Los Angeles zoo twice in the last six years and both times, the experience was the same. Easily 40% of the enclosures had no animals in them. Among the animals they do have, many behave in a manner that suggests they are not treated well. The zoo itself is, as other reviews have stated, laid out very poorly and with confusing signage. With San Diego not too far away, one questions the need for the ... view more

All zoos are an abomination and should be closed permanently. We capture animals, imprison them in unnatural settings, and then pretend to our children that this is good and the animals must like it since they're safe and well fed. How would you like to live that way? Would you put your pet in a zoo? Would you put your child in a zoo? Why animals?

Animal Internment Camp

The LA zoo should really be shut down until it can be re-done in such a manner that it would not be abusive to the animals forced to exist there. \r \r 1. The enclosures are shamefully small and inadequate. \r \r 2. The bee/yellow jacket problem is out of control - if you suffer from bee sting allergies, avoid this place EVEN if you have an Epi-Pen.\r \r 3. The signs that are posted to help you find your w... view more

HORRIBLE! Needs to be demolished! Animals go elsewhere...

I hadn't been in eight years, previous to that it had been in the early 90's. Whoever wrote previous reviews are rediculous. The truth's filthy..All of the animals are in the exact SAME HABITATS! Even the ""snow leopard"" is in 90 degree heat. There are plenty of money making souvenier shops. It was dangerous, there were swarms of bee's everywhere there was a trash can. I felt terrible for all the animals, i... view more
