A day at the zoo with the animals can relieve stress surprisingly well.

In addition, it is also great for exercise! Zoos are almost always a long roundabout walking tour, and the best part is that you will not even notice all the numbers you are adding to the pedometer.

Almost all modern zoos today promote generosity to animals. Sometimes they also nurse wounded animals back to health, and then reintroduce them to the wild when they are better. Other than providing a safe haven for animals that would otherwise be endangered, zoos, aquariums, and natural wildlife reserves make for a fun and entertaining family retreat. Not only will you be amused by the cute baby animals and the many intrigues of wildlife ecosystems, it will also be a great educational resource. No visit to the zoo, however, is complete without corny zoo one-liners! You actually use animal puns more often than you think. Our allegories and legends often feature parallels from the animal kingdom. So all the animal puns, new and old, are also great outside zoos!

Read on for our wonderfully punny collection of zoo puns that you can use on your next day out! If you like these, you may also like our Farm puns and Dolphin puns.
