Updated on August 18, 2014

Pana`ewa Rainforest Zoo

A zoo that looks like a great place to visit is the Pana`ewa Rainforest Zoo that is located in Hilo on the big island of Hawaii. This zoo is very unique, firstly it is the only natural tropical rainforest zoo in the United States and second, admission is free. The zoo is home to more than 80 animal species including the endangered Nene (Hawaii State Bird) and Namaste, a white Bengal Tiger.
