The Maryland Zoo, located in Baltimore, Maryland, is a popular attraction for both locals and tourists. It is home to more than 1,500 animals representing over 200 species, including lions, giraffes, zebras, elephants, flamingos, and more.
The zoo has a variety of exhibits and attractions, including the Maryland Wilderness exhibit, which showcases native species such as black bears, beavers, and bald eagles. The African Journey exhibit features animals from the savannas and forests of Africa, including giraffes, gorillas, and rhinos. The Polar Bear Watch exhibit allows visitors to see these majestic animals up close and learn about their habitat and conservation efforts.
Founded in 1867 and occupying 135 acres within Baltimore's Druid Hill Park, The Maryland Zoo (formerly The Baltimore Zoo) is home to 130 different species of birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles spread throughout four main areas: Penguin Coast, Polar Bear Watch, Maryland Wilderness, and African Journey, where the Elephant House is located.
The Maryland Zoo also offers a range of educational programs, such as animal encounters and behind-the-scenes tours. There are also special events throughout the year, including holiday lights displays, concerts, and festivals.
In addition to the animals and exhibits, the Maryland Zoo also has a gift shop and a variety of food options, including a sit-down restaurant and quick service stands. The zoo is easily accessible by car or public transportation, and there is ample parking available.
