We love a zoo, and we LOVE nature, so when there is a zoo IN a rainforest, we get pretty excited!
The Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo is nestled right in the heart of those stunning Smoky Mountains and is home to some pretty incredible creatures from rainforest’s all over the world!
There are over 600 live animals within the zoo that you can get up close to, and they represent over 130 amazing species (did you even know that many species lived in the rainforest!)
Like any zoo, the Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo has reptiles, amphibians, mammals and those striking birds. The reptiles of course give you snakes, crocodilians, lizards and turtles to learn all about. Did you know that the tortoise can live over 125 years?! How amazing is that!
There are so many mammals at the zoo, you won't know where to start! Maybe you want to check out the cheeky Lapuchin Monkeys, or the curious Lemurs? There are even mammals you might not have heard of before, including the Genet, Cavy and Coatimundi. What better place to learn what they are than right in front of them!
When you think of a rainforest, you think of those brightly colored birds in the trees, and at Rainforest Adventures Discovery Zoo they have a variety of tropical and temperate birds. The Blue & Gold Macaw will amaze kids with it's bright blues and yellows, and the finches are perfect for taking those pictures with their splashes of color!
Of course, if you REALLY love the zoo and think your friends will too, then why not have a birthday there with the animals to celebrate! We know you want to! Happy birthday!
A charming zoo experience with a difference in Tennessee - don't forget your camera!
