I don't know what these other reviews are talking about! The Topeka Zoo was awesome the time I went. Very affordable like a small zoo should be, but also a had a great variety of large and small animals.
It is home to 2 Hippos (including a baby)! Not normal for a small town zoo to have these awesome creatures! Also home to Giraffes, Elephants, Tigers, Lions, Mountain Lions, a Black Bear, Gorillas, Orangutans (including a newborn), an Albino Crocodile, and much much more.
That list is impressive for a big city zoo (No zoo in Chicago has Hippos or Elephants!), let alone the tiny city of Topeka!
However, the most interesting thing about this zoo in my opinion was all the local and non typical zoo animals that it had. Things like skunks and leeches and about 5 different kinds of tarantulas! There is a freaky insect building and a pretty cool rain forest dome with free roaming Flamingos, Scarlet Macaws, and other birds.
