Lions are unpredictable creatures, which is why you should never approach them in the wild or depend on them to babysit your pet gazelle. Have a brush with the animal kingdom with this Groupon.

Zoo Atlanta set up shop in 1889, and has since become one of the top destinations in the Southeast for viewing wildlife from around the world. Many animals have found their home at Zoo Atlanta, from elephants and tigers to gorillas and zebras. All in all, more than 1,000 animals currently roar and romp in their respective habitats, meeting up once a night to dish over visitors’ summer outfits.
A typical journey through the Zoo begins at Flamingo Plaza, from which visitors can choose one of two paths: They either take the left path and come face to face with elephants, warthogs, and lions, or they can choose the right and find themselves amid a flurry of exotic birds and excitable children at the KidZone playground. Visitors can walk at their own pace and follow their own path, still watching otters play, the nation's largest zoological population of great apes interact with their families, and giant pandas pretend like they don’t care people are watching them sleep. Guests can also check out a variety of amphibians and reptiles at the Zoo's newest destination, Scaly Slimy Spectacular: The Amphibian and Reptile Experience.
