Fresno Chaffee Zoo

Horn Photo gives Fresno Chaffee Zoo Five stars

Fresno’s Chaffee Zoo is highly rated for good reason. The environments they provide for the animals are similar to what they would have in the wild. It affords the opportunity to get unobstructed photos of all types of animals. Elephants, rhinos, giraffes, storks, tropical birds, reptiles. Not interested in a giraffe? How about a Komodo dragon? Or a goat.
