Odense ZOO houses more than 2,000 animals and 147 species from around the world including red pandas, endangered tapirs, Siberian tigers, and giant manatees. At the time of its opening, the zoo had two apes, a peacock, a deer, a mule, a magpie, and a guinea pig. Accompany an animal keeper, feed the giraffes, or spend the night at the zoo in your own savannah tent in the African camp. In 2001, the zoo opened the "Oceanium," featuring South American animal life. Amenities include plenty of restaurants and a children's playground with a jungle gym.

The only reason I rate it a 4/5 is the fact that it is on the smaller size, which may not necessarily be a drawback to everyone. But what it lacks in size and variety, it easily makes up for in charm.
