America’s first zoo houses more than 1,300 animals. Zebras, giraffes & rhinos reside in African Plains. At the award-winning Big Cat Falls, view lions, tigers, jaguars, pumas & leopards and learn about these wild cats through interactive stations. At the Children’s Zoo, kids can feed farm animals & look for creepy crawlers in the Backyard Bugs area. Observe 100+ exotic birds & see a new 4-D theater show in the Zoo’s new McNeil Avian Center.
Kids can ride on the Amazon Rainforest Carousel, the Channel 6 Zoo Balloon that rises 400 ft. above the Zoo or on a train, pony, camel or swan boat.
Download a map & review the daily keeper talks & feeding schedules at the Zoo’s website. Children can learn animal facts and play games & puzzles at the Kids Club website.
