Oregon Zoo

If you've never been to a zoo before, I highly recommend this one! It is relatively large and has many animals in their natural habitats! They had penguins in an ice room, a simulation of actual Arctic conditions! They had koalas on actual eucalyptus trees! The zoo keeper definitely went way out of his way to make his animals at home, something that I feel actually aids the overall experience. When the animal is from Africa, its exhibit looks and feels like Africa. When the animal is from the polar ice caps, its exhibit is as cold as the polar ice caps. If the animal is from Central America, its exhibit... well, you get the point. The animals are right at home and the guests do not intrude whatsoever!
