The Birmingham Zoo is located in Lane Park, adjacent to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens. It began as a small menagerie of animals, but with the support of the Alabama Zoological Society, the zoo grew to be home to over 800 animals representing over 200 species. Two things the zoo is most known for are Babec, the Western Lowland Gorilla and the African Lion Cubs. Besides the animal attractions there’s also events that go on throughout the year that include live music, races, zoo nights, camps, classes, the butterfly garden, train rides, camel rides, a carousel, and much much more.
