Alexandria Zoo is at 3016 Masonic Dr. The zoo contains more than 500 wild animals, including 20 endangered species. Big cats lounge in themed exhibit areas such as Land of the Jaguar and the African Experience, while Louisiana Habitat gives visitors a peek at the underwater activities of turtles, otters and alligators.
Other zoo residents include black bears, wallabies and red-tailed hawks. Pint-size visitors clamor to take a ride aboard the Bayou Le Zoo Choo Choo, a scale model of a C.P. Huntington steam locomotive.
