What is there to do?

Sometimes you visit a zoo and it's a place where you can visit with some adorable animals. Then, sometimes you visit a zoo and it becomes an experience!

Welcome to Philadelphia Zoo!

Philadelphia Zoo is considered one of the best zoos in the US, and features animals from all over the world, including some incredible endangered species too, giving kids an invaluable lesson in conservation.

Kids can come face to face with their favorites, as well as discover ones they may never have heard of! Jerboa, anyone?

You can spend your days with the aardvark, or the aye-aye, or watch the common zebra wander in herds.

There are cuties like the mole rat and the gerbil, then cheeky monkeys like the marmoset and the tamarin. Let's not forget those ones that will take your breath away, like the white rhino and the snow leopard.

It's not just mammals at Philadelphia Zoo either - they have the amazingly colorful birds, the scaly reptiles and everything in between.

Kids can really learn about new and wonderful things when you see the zoo keepers talk, or enjoy a training show, or take part in a special presentation. There is so much learning to be had, you might just have to go back again!

So why not make your next family day out a WILD one at Philadelphia Zoo - you'll have a ROARING time!

They can bring the zoo to you, or you can join them on a field trip! There are tours, different curriculum programs, and great lessons!

Can I get one of those?

You will need that pocket money, because the gift shop has great souvniers, and animal related items, and you are supporting the zoo at the same time!
