Sign on the door of the reptile building, "If you observe other animals eating one another, please come back at a later time."

Well, I didn't observe any reptile eating another reptile, the zoo certainly is a terrific place to stop. NOT all zoo's are alike! At an ultra-affordable price, missing the Albuquerque Museum would be disappointing. They do a terrific job on displays and shows.

Big fans of reptiles must stop by and see the Komodo Dragon! A truly majestic creature. The Mexican Wolves like to hide but if you're lucky you might see them. There are creatures here that are not at your local zoo - including the Birds of Prey.

When dining outside, be sure to watch for the friendly, somewhat demanding peacock that wanders about wanting food. When outside having a snack, be leery of feeding a sparrow - one piece of food to him and he invites several dozen of his buddies!
