When you are visiting Washington DC you should not forget to visit the National Zoo of Washington along with your family. The National Zoo is one of the most exquisite places in the world where you can find a wide range of the wild life. It contains species that are very rare and even near extinct in the world. Due to this reason it is playing a great role in protecting the endangered species. Small children in the family enjoy a lot and learn from their trip and thus it is always great to take them along. The zoo also has a walking/ and jogging track where you can enjoy the cool breeze of the morning as well as mesmerize by the beauty of natural Fauna.

If you are planning to visit the zoo try to reach the zoo early in the morning. The zoo is open at 6am in the morning. At this time the crowd is less and you can enjoy at the peak. First visit the outdoor animals and explore their habitat. Then you can move to see the animals in the inner building at 10’o clock. In this manner you will not miss any animals. Also the other benefit of the early morning visit is that all the animals are very active in the morning and you can enjoy their active movements. Try visiting the place in the weekdays because there is a chance that the place is much more crowded at the weekends. Also summers and springs are more crowded than the winters and autumn.

The most favorite animals that are present in the zoo are giant pandas. The National Zoo is one of the few places where you can see the Pandas. The pandas with their playful nature and white trunk with black spot are quite an amusement for the children. The zoo also contains many different species of tigers, cheetahs and lions. They roar and growl at their peak to show that they are the king of the jungle. In the monkey bar you can see a lot of monkeys doing mimickery and other stuff to attract a large number of people. Monkeys have been imported from Africa and India to support the largest number of species that are present in the world. Among the animals that live in water we have sea lions and hippopotamus.

In the giant animals the zoo contains Asian Elephants and the Andean Bears. They are kept in separate areas where they are provided with as natural habitat as possible. A section has been kept for the baby animals it contains small bear lion cubs and cheetah cubs. Also a section has been made for the browsers like the giraffes, deers and goats. The giraffes look great and many children enjoy getting photographs with them.
