Chongqing Zoo

There is a large zoo is in the southern part of Chongqing. Chongqing Zoo has an area of about 45 hectares. There are over 200 species of animals and 1,000 birds. There is a tea house and restaurants. There are pens or corrals for animals and amusement facilities, and the two kinds of pandas in the Panda Room are the star attraction.

Detailed Description

The zoo has an interesting variety of animals and amusement facilities. There is the rare South China Tiger. It is thought to be about the rarest kind of tiger. There may be less than 20 left in the wild. They used to live in forests in southern China. They are smaller than most tigers, and look lankier. There is also a Tibetan bear with a yellowish colored head that dances when people give it coke or goodies.

In the Panda Room, visitors can see the giant pandas and the cat-like small pandas, as well as their off springs. Between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. is the panda feeding time when you can see the pandas feeding. The small pandas are a species of animal that look like big but unusually long house cats that move strangely. I thought that they are fascinating. Even though they look like cats, they are more beautifully colored and don't act like cats. Read more on Giant Pandas
