It can be hard to spot more bashful beasts from behind the boulders, but the Tucson zoo is worth the trip. – History
Over the years, Tucson's traditional zoo has replaced its bar-and-concrete enclosures with natural, comfortable habitats for more than 400 types of mammals, reptiles and birds from around the world. Reid Park Zoo has developed a thriving captive-breeding program for endangered species, and its efforts on behalf of the giant anteater have been so successful that the long-snouted beast is incorporated into the zoo's logo. The enclosures are arranged in habitat areas which group animals by continent and ecosystem, the newest and most attractive of which is the South America Habitat Loop, where dense vegetation provides the right ambience for llamas, the flightless bird called Darwin's Rhea, tapirs, sloths and carnivorous pirahna, as well as many bird species in a lush aviary.
The polar bears, giraffes, elephants, and monkeys are perennial favorites.
