Tulsa Zoo And Living Museum

Updated on March 23, 2013

We're Going To The Zoo!

Zoos are great for people of all ages. Children especially love zoos! Watching an exotic animal from a close yet safe distance is an opportunity anyone will love to experience. Zoos are open all year-round except for certain holidays (check your local zoo schedule) Some zoos also have gift shops and sell food/drinks. Because of all the walking that is required, :) a zoo is a great place to get exercise. It is also a great place to build everlasting memories with your loved ones.

The word 'zoo' is short for zoological park or zoological garden. A zoo is a facility in which animals are confined within, displayed to the public, and sometimes they may also be bred.

~This lens is about the Tulsa Zoo & Living Museum~
