Zoo Tours Ep. 34: The Wings of the World || Cincinnati Zoo



What was once the zoo’s original Reptile House back in 1937, is now a diverse display of living colors that paint the world’s sky. One of the country’s smaller but finer and atypical bird houses. From song birds to seabirds, you’ll find a collection that represents seven realms of the world. Beginning with the humid tropics of the Americas and ending with the polar regions of the south. Lifelike murals and lavishly planted aviaries emit a naturalistic environment at every corner. Follow me and we’ll begin this celebration of flight in the Wings of the World at the Cincinnati Zoo.
