Zooleón

Leon's zoo is a treasure. Nicely landscaped, with shady walking-friendly paths, it also has an inexpensive Safari tram ride. The collection of animals includes many unique to Mexico, not often seen in zoos in other parks. Zooleón, as the park is nicknamed, also includes a large raptor section, including eagles, hawks, owls and vultures. A "night safari" tour is also available. The Children's Zoo offers a friendly, up-close view of many animals. There is also a series of temporary exhibitions, recently including "poisonous reptiles" and even dinosaurs. (Since there was nothing in recent newspaper reports, we have to assume that the T. rex didn't escape...)
