All the old favorites are here: Asiatic lions, South American monkeys, zebras, funky little marmosets and tamarins. This zoo is a sure-fire hit for children and adults alike. The jewel in Edinburgh Zoo's crown has to be the penguins, who make a regular parade outside their enclosure at 2p from March through October (when weather permits). They can also be viewed swimming underwater in the world's biggest penguin pool. Visitors can arrange to handle the smaller animals (such as snails, rats and snakes) or to take a safari ride in an open-sided trailer. Take the opportunity to meet some of the keepers and learn about the more exotic and endangered inhabitants here. There's a great little gift shop with lots of affordable goodies, and a handy coffee shop/restaurant.
