The zoo opened to the public in the spring of 1970 and they now have animals from all over the world. The Baton Rouge Zoo animals are divided into sections that include Australia, Africa, Asia, and South America. Guests can watch three different shows every day including the Otter Chat, Wildlife Safari Theater, and the Running of the Ducks. Visitors will enjoy grabbing a quick lunch or snack at either the Cool Critters Café or the Flamingo Café and no one will be able to resist making a purchase at the Safari Post Gift Shop before leaving the zoo.
