The Memphis Zoo isn't the largest zoo in the country, nor does it have the most animals, but is compact enough to enjoy in less than a day and is going to be only the fourth zoo in the US to have a permanent giant panda display. While that pandas haven't arrived yet (bummer!), the China display is ready for them. It is very impressive and is sure to be a hit. Once the panda do arrive, there will be a $3 per person fee to enter the China exhibit to pay for their care. Not only will the giant pandas have a beautiful home, but there will be other animals indiginous to China on display as well as cultural and historical displays and exhibits.
