A trip to the zoo is always fun especially if you are a big fan of Zoology. You get to see all kinds of animals that you would normally only see on the Discovery channel.
Apart from entertainment, a trip to the zoo can also be very educational (especially if you have kids) as you get to learn all sorts of things about different animals. You will probably say that anyone can learn about animals by watching the Discovery Channel, reading books or browsing the internet.
However, I can assure you that the feeling you get while seeing a real live lion (for example) in front of you is completely different compared to the feeling you get while reading or seeing a video of the same animal. So if I have managed to convince you to get off your ass and see real animals, here are the top ten zoos in the world.
