Kansas city zoo is one of the vast zoos I have seen. As a child I was fascinated by the Vandalur Zoo in Chennai. But KC Zoo is probably ahead of it in terms of size and organization. The zoo is organized as different continents – Africa, Australia, Asia and different animals feature in the continents separately. Of this, Africa is the biggest and probably has the most animals. The zoo is so huge you will need a full day to see it. Africa alone will need you half a day to cover it. Most of the animals are not caged. They are placed in naturally formed habitats with trails and observation points created for visitors divided by fences and trenches.
Leopard, Cheetah, Giraffe, Zebra, Rare Orangutan, Chimps, Baboons, Camel, Kangaroo, Elephants, Flamingo, Secretary bird (Don’t ask me why it is called so), Ostrich, Lemur, Meerkat, you name it they got it. The video of the Tiger playing with a ball was taken from the same place.
Here, I offer you a slideshow of the best zoo I have seen so far. Click on the photo to go to flickr to view the rest of the photos.
