You can observe the creatures native to these biomes in the various exhibits throughout them. There are also several interactive exhibits, such as a trail where children can climb into a tree house, and a farm setting where kids can pet and play with cows, goats, donkeys, and more. Take a trip on the Sky Safari ride to get an aerial view of the zoo's landscape or hop on the Dugout Canoe Ride for a float down a canal.
