The largest urban zoo of the United States lies within the heart of the Bronx, and is a must-visit for nature/ animal lovers or those with children. With numerous themed zones, species range from gibbons and gorillas to African and American wildcats, including cheetahs, panthers and lions. Recent habitat develops include a renovated JungleWorld ape and primate zone which replicates the natural rain-forest, along with Wild Asia, which represents some of the most common species from that part of the world.
