Who loves animals? The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens certainly do, so why not visit for a day of animal fun!
They have over 1,100 amazing animals, that represent more than 250 species from all across the world. Kids will have a great time coming face to face with some amazing creatures, and learning all about them.
At the Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens - the world comes to them!
If you like the scaly kind, the zoo has a host of reptiles to explore, from snakes, lizards, and even alligators. There are amphibians, and fish, and even invertebrates including scorpions, hissing cockroaches, and even tarantulas!
But what would a zoo be without those grand, magical, weird and wonderful mammals? Kids can experience the giant anteater, or learn what the Babirusa is. There are cheeky chimpanzees, majestic rhinos and even the grand lion.
The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens are SO much more than just watching animals in enclosures. There are incredible displays, from the Rainforest of the Americas where you can explore each layer of the forest, and meet the various species that live in each, and the Elephants of Asia enclosure where you can learn all about the struggle and importance of those incredible creatures.
Let's not forget about the botanical gardens. Here the whole family can learn about the vital connections between the flora and the fauna. Plants are food, shade and life!
The Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens also have fun events throughout the year, so check what's on regularly to make sure you don't miss out, and they even offer birthday parties, so you can celebrate in animal style!
The animal fun starts here!
