The favorite place of many children is definitely the facility which has a lots of animals to see, one more interesting and exotic than the other. The Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium can provide all in one place, having animals from the wide African savanna to the Asian forest, bears from the mountains, and polar bears from the colder territories. The Aquarium shows also different kinds of sea creatures from small colorful fishes to sharks and penguins.
