For the size of Las Vegas, the zoo is surprisingly small--only 3-acres in size.  The zoo is non-profit and admission fees and sales from a gift shop help support the zoo.  Cages are mostly made of chainlink fence.

The zoo has some nice areas to sit and relax; these benches are located along the alligator tanks and not far from the Barbary Apes (the last family of Barbary Apes in the United States). 


Every zoo seems to have flamingos near the entrance.
