Founded in 1859, Copenhagen Zoo has since evolved to become one of Europe’s largest zoological gardens.
A huge watch tower stands over grounds, where over 3,000 and 264 species are given as close an approximation of their natural habitats. At the tropical area, crocodiles swim in swamps, boa constrictors slithers, poisonous spiders crawl, and butterflies fly free in a rainforest environment. Of course, there are tigers, lions, elephants, and Tasmanian devils! These rare species were gifts from the people of Tasmania to Prince Christian whose mother was born and raised in the island.
