United States Zoos

United States Zoos Facts and History

United States Zoos and all over the world are places where animals are kept in cages or confined with fences. “The word “zoo” was first used to describe the London Zoological Gardens in 1847. Up until that time, zoos were usually called menageries. They were often set up for the scientific study of animals, it was only natural that the word “zoo” would eventually come to refer to these places dedicated to zoology, which is the study of animals.” If you measure the zoos by the number of different species, San Diego is the largest. It is one of the most famous in the world. They have over 4,500 animals from over 900 different species.
