The huge area of the San Diego Zoo offers children and adults a huge variety of animals. There are frogs and salamanders, eagles, condors and flamingos, bears, antelope and many many more. I think the nicest attraction are the polar bears and the monkeys are always fun to watch.
There are about 4000 different species and if you go there, make sure you go early. It's a huge place, and there is lots and lots to see.
