We love the Indianapolis Zoo because of its gardens! But there's more to see than just them. Tickets are $11 for adults and $9 for children. We recommend buying a membership right away! The membership entitles you to free parking! And free admission for two guests.
Once you enter the zoo, the first thing you see is a huge open pond with sea lions, they are lounging in the sun, swimming, somersaulting in the water - their grace is a delight.
The zoo is very large and is themed for most holidays. Volunteers do most of the work at the zoo, taking care of the animals. You can visit the dolphin show as many times as you like during the day for free if you buy a ticket to the zoo. It takes place 2-3 times a day, depending on the condition of the pets.
In the hall with snakes at certain hours you can listen to a lecture and pet a huge white python. There are exhibits - snake skeletons, imitation snake jaws and how a snake releases venom during a bite!
