Many people come to Brazil to catch a glimpse of wildlife only to leave disappointed. This will not be the case if you visit the zoo, located in São Cristóvão. Inaugurated in 1945 and recently renovated to give the animals a better living space, there is a wide variety of rare and endangered Brazilian species including nocturnal animals. There is also a large walk-through aviary that is sure to thrill grown-ups and children alike. To make things even better for the kids, there is a shop selling stuffed animals from the various regions in Brazil.
