The Tennoji Zoo, in addition to reproducing as closely as possible the original habitats and environments of animals, also serves as a kind of “ecological exhibition” to introduce to the public how these animals live. The opening of a Reptile House in 1995 was followed by the opening of a Hippo House, Rhino House and Herbivorous Animal Area in the African Savanna Zone, as well as an Elephant House in the Asian Tropical Rainforest Zone. The zoo’s African Savanna Zone was completed in September 2006 with the opening of a Carnivorous Animal Area, bringing carnivorous and herbivorous creatures together under one environment, almost as if they were back on the African continent.

Where to finde the Zoo:
I don't have any guides of this zoo. Does any body know if they made any guides? And where I can get those?
In the years 1940, 1965, 1990 and 2015 they had theire anniversarrys. Have they made any books on this occassion?
