Have you ever been to the San Diego Zoo? The park itself is huge, covering around 100 acres and hosting more than 3,700 animals in more than 650 species. It could easily take days to explore and see everything the zoo has to offer.
But when it comes to learning about one certain species in particular, use the San Diego Zoo's Animal Finder tool. Not only does this tool host a wealth of information on lots of animals, but if you're visiting the park, it can help you locate them, so you don't miss them during your visit.
All you need to do is click on a particular animal to get started, or sort your animals by region. Click through to learn about the animals' habitat, habits, and other fun facts.
For example, did you know that rhinoceroses can get sunburned? That's why they like to hang out in the mud. And did you know that elephants use their ears as an air conditioner? Amazing!
Better yet, the San Diego Zoo has several animal cams spread throughout the zoo, so if you click through to one of the animals whose exhibit has an animal cam, you will be able to take a live look at the animals. (Hint: There are cams for elephants, apes, California condors, pandas and polar bears.)
