About London Zoo London Zoo is the oldest scientific zoo in the world. It was founded in 1828 by Sir Stamford Raffles and Sir Humphrey Davy. The original purpose of the zoo was not a zoo, but a centre for scientific research and study. It was not until 1847 that the facility opened up its doors for visitors. Because of their location, which is nearby Regent’s Park, the zoo is sometimes also referred to as Regent’s Zoo. They have more than 17.000 animals, divided into more than 750 different species. They have therefore one of the largest collections in the UK. They have an aquarium for various fish, an insect house and a reptile house. You can also visit the zoo to see tropical animals. Examples of the animals that you can see are Lions, Lemurs, Otters, Meerkats, bugs, Spiders, penguins, butterflies, komodo dragons, tigers, tortoises, gorilla’s and animals from Africa. They even have a special Children’s Zoo. And don’t forget the rain forest animals. London Zoo also provides a special educational program for schools and other groups of children. That way they can learn about animals from all other the world. Besides school education, they also have other programs like Keeper for a Day, Meet the Animals and photography workshops. Are you or your children/pupil(s) more of a theoretical learner? The London Zoo had a large library where you can find out everything that you might want to know about your favourite animals. All you need to do is to request a Library reference ticket.

I and my family skipped movies last weekend, instead, we decided to see something more exploring, interesting and natural this time. My 16-years daughter Leo and 12-year-old son Lenard have shown their great interest to visit ZSL London Zoo. They got all pictures and information online. I was already impressed with all stuff online about ZSL London zoo but honestly, when we reached there, we were blown out!. The place was immensely stuffed with various exciting sections. we have seen the zoorasic park, one of best there..all real looking dinosaurs .. it was quite similar to JURRASSIC PARK movies :) and then we saw animals like Lions, Lemurs, Otters tigers, tortoises, and so much to see. For children, like my Lenard, there is another special children Zoo. We enojoyed some activities there like Penguin beach where we saw adorable cute walking penguins. We have never seen such variety of species in animals, reptiles, birds and insects , not in any zoo earlier. I recommend this place is must-visit and one may not see all in one day coz it is so huge..
