Canada's largest zoo is home to 5,000 creatures that encompass over 450 species, so visitors certainly have a lot of ground to cover. Pavilions such as the African rainforest, Malayan woods and Eurasia, among others, provide a glimpse of wildlife from all over the world. Meanwhile, the Kids' Zoo lets pint-size patrons meet alpacas, woodchucks and other cool residents. Although the giant panda exhibit closed in 2018 after a 10-year run, Da Mao, Er Shun, Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue – who once called the venue home – are ready to say hello to guests at Calgary Zoo's Panda Passage. Family trip, anyone?
