Khon Kaen Zoo

Overview

7.6

Khon Kaen Zoo is one of the recent additions to the Zoological Parks Organisation (ZPO) zoos in Thailand. Like the others under their care, this zoo is of a much higher standard than the standards found elsewhere in Thailand. The zoo contained a number of other animals including bears, lions, hippos, various bird species and a wide range of ungulates. All of these appeared to have large, spacious, species-specific enclosures and no hands-on interactions between animals and the public.

How Many Tigers?
