The oldest zoo in America is getting a modern update.
The newly-designed, LEED-certified KidZooU at the Philadelphia Zoo opens to the public on Saturday. Much more than a petting zoo, the green children’s zoo and education center includes several indoor and outdoor exhibits featuring rare animals, a 400-foot trail for goats to roam and a barnyard and stables where visitors can pet sheep.
It’s the first zoo in the world where animals can move through trails and bridges to explore other exhibit areas.
Take a look at some of the beautiful rare breeds living at KidZooU below:
