Where Education Comes Alive. Denver Zoo, open every day, is home to more than 4,000 animals representing 650 species including Asian elephants, African lions, Komodo dragons and Western lowland gorillas. With numerous animal shows and feedings, as well as interactive exhibits, it's no wonder Denver Zoo is Colorado's top cultural attraction. You may only spend the day at Denver Zoo but that day always sticks with you.
