What is there to do?

There is SO much to be learnt from animals, and so much to learn about animals, that when you visit a place like Denver Zoo, kids will really come back with some invaluable insights into the world!

Denver Zoo has over 4,000 animals that represent over 750 species from all around the world. You don't even have to get on a plane to discover the wonders of African, or the magic of Asia - really, the animal world has come to YOU!

Denver Zoo has weird and wonderful mammals, reptiles, fish, birds, and even plants that can show you how diverse our planet really is. Kids can come face to face with their favorites, and even meet some creatures they had no idea existed!

Have you ever seen a Malayan Tapir before, or heard of a Capybara? The zoo is also dedicated to wildlife conservation, so when kids meet creatures such as teh ASian Elephant or the Western Lowland gorilla, they can really understand why we need to look after our beautiful wildlife!

There are adorable Aye-Aye's to meet, and Harbor Seals to watch. From the common warthog, to the grand South African Lion and the Siberian Tiger, kids can see creatures of all sizes, shapes and colors. 

You might even spot some babies too!

Denver Zoo has daily feedings and showtimes, which are great for the kids to learn even more about the animals. They can watch the llamas and penguins being fed, or watch the elephant demonstrations. You can even learn what it takes behind the scenes to really work with lions and wild dogs!
