Visitors can feed giraffes and have behind-the-scenes adventures with African elephants, giant pandas and a Komodo dragon. See the nation's largest collection of gorillas, the largest zoological collection of orangutans in the U.S., and many vanishing reptiles and amphibians. Don't miss interactive wildlife shows; keeper talks and training demonstrations; the petting zoo; playgrounds; and kid-friendly rides and attractions.
