The San Diego Zoo is a zoo located in Balboa Park, San Diego, California. It is home to more than 3500 animals of more than 800 species and subspecies. The San Diego zoo is known for their open-air, cageless exhibits that allow people to experience a recreation of natural animal habitats. Exhibits at the zoo are designed around a particular habitat. The same exhibit features many different animals that can be found side by side in the wild, along with the native plant life.
