Rio Zoo - Review

The Rio de Janeiro Zoological Gardens had been established in 1888 and lies on Quinta da Boa Vista area. This zoo has over two thousand five hundred animals from around the world.

Several Brazilian species of animals and birds can be seen in this place. Another interesting point about the zoo is that one has to walk in through an aviary when entering the premises. The tropical birds with their many bright colors are definitely worth the visit. Do keep in mind that the zoo is still not completely functioning so some parts of the zoo might be under construction when you visit so they may not be accessible. However, all the permanent exhibits are always open to the tourists.
