Like most big cities, the capital of Spain has its own Zoo. But this is not just any Zoo! Madrid’s Zoo Aquarium combines two animal-related attractions in one, giving visitors the opportunity to visit both land and air animals and also those who live underwater.
Some of the animals that can be found at the Zoo Aquarium include bisons, giraffes, lions, camels, penguins, cassowaries, sharks, koalas, and turtles.
This fantastic venue first opened its doors in 1770, and it is one of the largest zoos in Spain, with a total of 49 acres. This is one of the few zoos in the entire world to have giant pandas and what is even more exciting, they have successfully mated and the female panda gave birth to an adorable baby named Chulina.
