The expanding Memphis Zoo draws crowds
Zoo has a lot of variety for the family, from pandas to watching
polar bears & sea lions swimming underwater. A new exhibit is being
developed that will feature a âlodgeâ like the Old Faithful Inn which
will open in 2009, followed by anoher one within a year.
The zoo's newest exhibit, which opened in 2006, is Northwest Passage. Inside the cool enclosure you can watch polar bears and sea lions swimming in their separate enclosures. You can see them up close in the viewing area and they can see you too! The sea lions especially like to interact with their visitors. Read more about the Memphis Zoo from a recent visit by our writer, Tommy Ford.
