Like a fish out of the water

The Copenhagen Zoo is situated in Frederiksberg and is located on just over 11 hectares next to Frederiksberg Slot. It was founded in 1859 and is one of the oldest zoos in Europe.

It is the only zoo outside of Australia that has Tasmanian Devils in captivity and also has rare species such as the Okapi, Musk Ox and Amur Leopard.

In this photograph one can see the zebra in winter time with the characteristic Zoo Tower from 1905, an observation tower built entirely out of wood in the background.
