The rhinos are all over the zoo. They have special enclosures and are well cared for, but they also travel to other zoos in hopes of propagating the species.
When I was a kid, there were not any statuary at the zoo. Now there are all kinds, to commemorate all the different species. The kids climb on them and get their pictures taken with them.
Cincinnati Zoo is a land locked zoo. They have no room for growth, so they bought properties around them and tore down the buildings and made parking areas. Then they took the parking areas and used them to grow.
They have a lion now, but it was not out when I was there. I guess when I take girls we will continue to see if he is out.
They still have the pond in the center of the top area of the zoo. With their fountain and the swans.
They also have ducks and other birds in this area. It is a very pretty area and when I was a kid, you were allowed to throw in some food to feed the swans, ducks, etc. But today, you are not allowed to feed the birds.
There is another section that has some rhinos, wild horses, emus, and camels.
There is an insect house that used to be there, but has changed a lot over the years. There used to be a cat house, but that has been changed into a "Night Hunters" Exhibit or what used to be the night creatures. Their house was converted into a lizard house. They have a Komodo dragon in it, along with some other lizards.
There is a section that was added near the bear exhibit that houses some of the monkeys, etc. It is called Jungle Trails. It has some birds, but mostly monkeys (I am uncertain what the correct term would be).
Near the Night Hunter's exhibit is a cat trail, where you can see some of the big cats they have also. A Cougar, some tigers (white and orange) and 2 snow leopards (all sleeping on last visit).
There is a Children's Section where you can see baby animals that have to be cared for by zoo staff, and more tame animals, like goats, cows, sheep, etc.
There is a Bird House, but I really need to go when I am more congested. The place stinks to high heaven constantly, but has lots of birds and penguins.
There is the Bear Section. This has been there forever.
Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden (yeah lots of flowers) is a really nice place to visit and it amazes me how much it changes even if the last time I visited was only a month ago.
