This area was really neat. Outside, the kids got to play with and groom animals, and inside, they had several animals, insects, and reptiles on display. They even had some extremely unique species that despite all of the aquariums and zoos I've visited, I had never seen or even read about. They also had a viewing area where you could watch the veterinarians doing procedures on the sick animals from around the park, and an area where you could watch them prep food for the animals. We didn't hang around for that part though because I'm sure Maddi would have melted when she saw a sick little duck who needed his airway flushed. It was really need to get a little behind the scenes peek though.
