ABSTRACT
Zoo, a place where living animals are kept to be exhibited and studied. The name is a popular abbreviation of zoological garden, and most zoos are gardens or parks containing buildings and other enclosures. Zoos usually keep only wild animals, many of them from distant countries. However, some zoos display domestic animals such as cows and hogs to show to city children who have no chance to visit farms. Children's zoos are sometimes included in zoological gardens. They may have nurseries where children can view young animals, and sometimes have areas where children can pet and feed tame animals.
