Meet an ostrich on Atlanta property.Come play at the Atlanta Zoo and marvel at all the exotic animals now calling Atlanta home. There are so many animals to see that the biggest question will be who to visit first. Lions and tigers and bears prowl around on this Atlanta property. A variety of snakes, large lizards and other amphibians and reptiles also slither here. Check out the bog turtle and then see if you can spot the camouflaging gaboon viper. If he notices you, this Atlanta Zoo snake may just give you a slow wink. Everyone is impressed by the larger than life elephants. And, if the kids want to monkey around after viewing the impressive orangutan, spend some time at the KidZone playground. Plenty of feathery friends perch on this Atlanta, GA property. With over 50 species there are more than enough to keep any bird watcher happy, and it will be easy to spot the largest species of bird, the ostrich. Rise to the height of long necked giraffes and feed these lanky beasts from up high on the Twiga Terrace. The petting zoo also lets you get up close and personal with the animals. Little ones especially love the opportunity to interact with friendly sheep, goats and other docile creatures here.
