The Fort Worth Zoo is one of the top zoos in the country. It was first established back in 1909 with only a handful of animals including a lion, a couple of bears and a few other creatures. Since that time it has become a nationally recognized zoo and now houses over 5000 different animals. This includes both native animals and exotic animals from the world. The zoo is divided into a number of exhibits which attempt to recreate the animals natural environment. Among the exhibits is the popular African Savannah area which is home to animals such as giraffes, ostriches and rhinos. Another exhibit is the Raptor Canyon where you can see four different species of raptors including condors and of course eagles. In addition to these areas visitors will also see exhibits like the Asian Falls, World of Primates, Australian Outback, Parrot Paradise and much much more.
