Video about Copenhagen ZOO:
The Zoo is split by a street into two parts, linked to each other by a tunnel. Seven zones have been set up here: tropical, Arctic, Asian, African, South-American, Island and children. A large area was allocated to the Elephant House, where you can push buttons on a special display and listen to elephant cries that they get in different life situations. Nearby there are leopards, pandas, bears and penguins. Fine man-made tropics feature a real jungle with angry crocodiles, and gigantic butterflies of rare colouring fly high above your head. Here you will see Emu ostriches and pink flamingos, striped zebras and cheerful lemurs, kangaroos and hippopotami.
Children can ride a pony, enjoy themselves on the Rabbit town playground, where they can crawl in rabbit holes and learn more about the life of these wonderful animals.
