The Albuquerque BioPark Zoo in New Mexico houses a variety of animals including polar bears, mountain lions, birds, alligators, and monkeys. It is a small zoo compared to the one I visited in Nebraska, but it interesting enough for the whole family to enjoy a 2-hour walk of sightseeing.
Most the animal displays and habitats were very well maintained and the staff were all friendly and accommodating.
This is a great park for the price. If you are a New Mexico resident, you will get a discounted entrance fee.
If you are visiting during summer months, arrive early to avoid the scorching heat of the day.
The flamingos will greet you at the entrance.
