One of the largest zoos in the World, San Diego Zoo is located in one glamorous city in US – San Diego. This zoo is divided into nine territories consisting of different species of animals according to their region of origin. The territories are Discovery Outpost, Lost Forest, Asian Passage, Panda Canyon, Polar Rim, Elephant Odyssey, Urban Jungle, African Rocks, and the Outback. Five of the sections consist of only one animals exhibit while the others have three until fourteen animals exhibits for each section.
The most interesting animals found in San Diego Zoo are polar bear and giant panda. Even though it seems impossible to see a polar bear in a such warm place like San Diego, in fact the polar beer exists in San Diego Zoo. A special cool spot was built for the polar bear to enable the visitors see a polar bear without go to the pole. The same thing goes for the giant panda which has a special place full of bamboo in San Diego Zoo just like its natural habitat in China.
