Best Zoo ever.

I've been to a few zoos, and i still think ours is the BEST! I go every year at least once.

Get an underwater view of hippos at the Hippoquarium, the only such zoo exhibit in the world, and then move on to see the 500 or so other species of mammals, reptiles and birds.

The Toledo Zoo has always been a great zoo to visit, but even better now that they are improving and expanding. Nice new elephant area and Nature's Neighborhood is a fun place for the little ones to run, play and explore!
