Great Plains Zoo & Delbridge Museum of Natural History
The Great Plains Zoo offers visitors an up-close look at more than 1,000 animals, from anteaters to zebras, penguins to porcupines, and including an exciting animal collection often not found in larger zoos: snow monkeys, giraffes, tigers, zebras, rhinos and a jumping, hooting array of primates.
