Zoo

A public park or institution in which living animals are kept and exhibited to the public. In cultural history, the buildings provided for keeping wild animals in captivity have often been of elaborate design. Today, the housing of wild animals places the emphasis on the natural habitat of the species, and provides elements to protect the visitors and spectators.
