I have been to Houston zoo. I have been to San Diego zoo. I heard great things about San Diego zoo as I was going there for my vacation last year November. However when I got there it seemed big and a lot of people were there with family. My interest was the reptiles... They had quite a few snakes but I didn't come across a single tarantula my Houston zoo has and natural science of museum has more stuff then San Diego and people talk about how San Diego zoo is that and that ya da ya da I'm sorry I dont see how that zoo is rated in one top zoos in the world if they can't even keep different type of reptiles ? Can anyone recommend more zoos or museum that have reptiles ?
