The Memphis Zoo
Memphis is only of four U.S. cities with its own pair
endangered animals, the giant pandas—Le Le and Ya Ya.
These adorable creatures are part of the much-acclaimed
China exhibit at the Memphis Zoo.
The China exhibit also spotlights Asian animals such
as Pere David deer, white-naped cranes, Asian small-clawed otters,
Chinese goldfish, and white-cheeked gibbons.
The entire China exhibit utilizes educational graphics,
murals, video, traditional music and artifacts to enrich
the experience as it engages each visitor in the culture,
history and wildlife of China.
The Memphis Zoo welcomes visitors through its Egyptian-themed gates
to view more than 400 species of animals, birds, and reptiles.
