Fodor's Expert Review Cleveland Metroparks Zoo
This zoo cares for more than 3,000 animals living in naturalistic habitats—giraffes and zebras roam in the African Savanna, kangaroos hop around in the Australian children's area, and gray wolves and beavers dwell in Wolf Wilderness. Rain drenches two indoor acres of tropical Asia, Africa, and South America every 12 minutes in the RainForest. More than 300 reptiles and 10,000 plants live and are on display in the simulated environments, which are spread among three levels. An impressive waterfall spills from 25 feet above the "jungle's" floor.
