.Back in 1927 the zoo opened when the first animal arrived to the area. Arriving as a gift a baby elephant by the name of Tom-Boy was given to the city of Erie. Next they needed some land. The Robert Evans estate was donated and suddenly Tom-Boy had a home. One year later with many donations and lots of work the Erie Zoo was opened. The zoo was an instant hit and almost as soon as it opened they started expanding. Next to be added to the zoo was an ice arena and a childrens zoo. This remarkable zoo contains 377 species of animals and 225 species of plants and a ¾ a mile trek around the zoo where you can cover the world of animals in 4 zoogeographic areas. AS you start off you voyage in Tropical America you can look at the playful Macaws and Galapagos Tortoises, Flamingos, Cuban Crocodiles and so many more animals. The bright colors and music and playful animals take you through this tropical area and wave goodbye as you travel into the rainforest of Africa. Africa holds some of the more popular zoo animals and here on your wild safari you will find giraffes, Grant's zebras, African lions, ostrich, Western lowland gorillas, chimpanzees and white rhinos, along with some of the not-so-familiar animals such as Arabian oryx, greater kudu, cape hunting dogs, bontebok and bongo. Feel tribal and sway with the music as you head into Indo-Australia. In the next area you will travel through the regions of Indonesia, the Philippines, New Guinea, Australia and New Zealand. Gaze at the wallabies, magpie geese, and look for the saltwater crocs before walking through the interactive aviary. Last but not least find the diversity of Asia.
