Description
Nashville Zoo Photos (12)

Have a wild time at Nashville Zoo, where you can learn about some of the world's most fascinating creatures. The Nashville Zoo is home to animals from all over the globe. Amphibians, arthropods (insects, arachnids, and crustaceans), birds, fish, mammals and reptiles each have their very own habitat meticulously constructed to resemble their natural homes.

One of the favorite habitats in the zoo is the Flamingo Lagoon, a 15,000 sq. ft oasis of waterways, featuring a flock of 30 Caribbean flamingos. With their fabulous pink showgirl feathers, long, curving necks and black-tipped beaks, the large birds are truly a sight to behold. “Their bright pink and orange coloring is caused by high levels of beta carotene found in their diet,” explains the Nashville Zoo, “they are the largest and most brightly colored of the species.”

Some of the fascinating exhibits include The Unseen World, which has 75 species of reptiles, amphibians, insects, and birds who all have the ability to hide from predators using specific behaviors. Bamboo Trail has animals, such as clouded leopards and ring-tailed lemurs, that are usually found in bamboo forests around the globe. The Meerkat Exhibit is home to more than 10 meerkats and displays their family-oriented dispositions. Gibbon Island has white-cheeked and siamang gibbons, and the Hyacinth Macaw Exhibit has macaws from across the globe, including Brazil, Paraguay, and Bolivia. Each exhibit accurately and beautifully reflects the natural surroundings of these fine animals.

From the rare white rhinoceros to red pandas, Caribbean flamingos, clouded leopards, and more, the Nashville Zoo has fascinating animals that give you and your children the ability to learn more about the world and all of the exciting creatures that live in it.

Guests can also ride the brand new Soaring Eagle zipline, tour the Grassmere Historic Home, take to the Jungle Gym, and see some of the newest exhibits such as the Spider Monkey: Treetop Passage exhibit and the Kangaroo Kickout.

Great fun for the entire family. I have children ranging from 9 to 17 and they all love the nashville zoo. We like to picnic out there and then play on the awesome playground. Oh, and the exhibits are fun too!!

We loved that so much of the paths were shaded by large bamboo trees but some of the bushes at the exhibits could have been trimmed some so it wouldn't abstruct the view as much. Be sure to take your own wagon with some lunch and drinks because you'll pay a small fortune there like any other tourist destination.
