If you like a unique way of spending your time at a zoo, try kayaking, or ride one of those paddle boats, or try the Treetop Trek Aerial Obstacle Course and Ziplines at Brevard Zoo. Aside from the 577 animals they display, you can also enjoy a variety of activities at the zoo. For a discounted rate in all those activities, always make use of the Brevard Zoo Coupons.
The zoo opened in 1994 in a 50-acre plot of land in Melbourne, Florida. It houses many animals which can be grouped into 165 species. The zoo has five major exhibits: Expedition Africa, La Selva, Australia/Asia, Wild Florida, and Paws on Play. The Expedition Africa is where you can try kayaking in the zoo grounds. La Selva is where you can find the jaguars and the Tamarins. Australia/Asia Exhibit houses animals from Asia and Australia. Florida, being famous for alligators and crocodiles is the motif of Wild Florida. Lastly, Paws on Play is the place for the whole family where you can enjoy water-play and petting zoo. And after a hectic and tiring tour, you can just sit down and watch animal shows or demos which focus on animal conservation.
