Philadelphia Zoo



NileGuide Expert Says:

There's never a dull moment at this zoo. Watch sea otters play, giraffes graze, and lion cubs learn from their parents.

Description:

The Philadelphia Zoo, in operation since 1874, is the oldest zoo in the United States. Frank Furness designed the beautiful Victorian gates and gatehouses, still standing grandly at the entrance. The zoo has nearly 1500 animals in various habitats, including a small mammal house, a reptile and amphibian house, a prairie dog field, and "African Plains." Kids and parents will enjoy the children's zoo with animals to pet, a ride on a camel's back in the African Plains, and a trip around the zoo on the monorail.
