The Jackson Zoo, which opened in 1919, introduces families to more than 800 animals that make up more than 200 species living in re-created habitats. Throughout the diverse man-made ecosystems, wandering animal lovers can see a pair of orangutans and 12 endangered species, such as the brown-headed spider monkey, amur leopard, and hungry, hungry pygmy hippopotamus. Patrons can also ride the train and carousel through the zoo before perusing the gift shop's colorful souvenirs, which include cups and shirts emblazoned with images of striding zebras or chimpanzees working as gaffers on the Planet of the Apes set.
