This is my first top list on zoo chat. I have only been to 5 different zoos (Tampa, Indy, Cincinnati, Louisville, Smithsonian) so this list only contains exhibits at zoos I have been to and let me know what are your favorite exhibits. 1. Oceans at the Indianapolis Zoo Now this is probably the coolest aquatic exhibit I've seen so far. The scent of the inside smells like fresh ocean water and the blue walls really makes the building pop. I love the underwater viewing for the pinnipeds and the very nice shark touch pool. The penguin exhibit is cool because, you can view them from the sides and you can even view them from below. But of course the star of the entire attraction is the country's only underwater dolphin dome, where you can literally be in the water with the dolphins. And that is why this is my favorite zoo exhibit of all time. But of course that will change in the future when I visit more zoos. 2. Amazonia at the National Zoo I love indoor rain forest exhibits and this is just gorgeous. The first floor is a very nice gallery with loads of terrariums and tanks for frogs, fish, and loads more. And the second floor is the best area which is a beautiful and lush rain forest with free roaming monkeys, free flying birds, and a nice tank with fish and rays. I can't wait to go back to the National Zoo and see this exhibit again this year. 3. Jungle Trails at the Cincinnati Zoo This exhibit is outstanding because, it literally places you in a recreation of a mini jungle and it feels like your trekking through a real one. The other reason why it feels like a real jungle is that you can see primates literally through the trees like what you would see in the wild. Once again I have no criticism for this exhibit but it doesn't live up to others. 4. Glacier Run at the Louisville Zoo This exhibit is supposed to represent an abandoned Alaskan town where humans and bears live together. The one thing that is really cool is that you can watch the bears walk above the guest path through a transfer tunnel. The pinnipeds look like they share space with the bears because of an illusion. I don't really have any criticism for this exhibit but it just doesn't live up to other exhibits on this list. 5. Deserts at the Indianapolis Zoo This exhibit really stands out to me because, it really feels like your in a true desert with it being over 80 degrees inside. And with the plants and rocks it really adds to the desert feel. But the reason it is at the bottom of the list is because, it pretty much displays reptiles but it does display Meerkats and Quails I just think their should be more of a variety of other animals like desert dwelling mammals and birds.
