Inspirock Rating:
1.1/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web
The Rio Zoo has housed animals since the 1800s, when it was a major attraction for the city. Nowadays, you can still see the proud pachyderm stuffing its mouth with hay and the statuesque giraffe winking at you with a big brown eye. Apart from the standard fare of African species, such as the lion and ape, you'll see native mammals and birds. For example, the sloth drapes itself in the branches for a long nap, while the macaws chatter in the distance. Take the kids to the petting zoo to feed farm animals, or watch the crocs pop out of the water during feeding time. Avoid the restaurants inside the park to save some cash; instead, opt for a picnic on one of the lawns.
