Most countries' best attractions include the zoo. People who travel around the world visit the zoo despite having a zoo in their own city or country. They enjoy looking and taking pictures of different kinds of animals.

Great zoos provide animals a place just like how their natural habitat should be. It is where animals are given value and importance, as they are the center of attraction just like a celebrity. Here are some of the most amazing zoos around the world as listed by 10 Most Today and Escape Here.

1. Bronx Zoo, New York City, US- The Bronx Zoo is one of the largest and oldest zoos around the world. It is said to be housing 650 different kinds of animals with a total of 6,000. Because of it being a great zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society founded a veterinarian society to provide primary care for 15,000 animals all over America.

2. Berlin Zoo, Germany- The Berlin Zoo contains almost 17,000 animals. Being one of the oldest zoos in Germany, it is as big as 84 acres.
