Akron Zoo to open 'Wild Asia' exhibit in May

Tigers, gibbons and red pandas featured in the Akron Zoo's new exhibit.

AKRON, Ohio — On May 29, visitors of the Akron Zoo will be treated to a new experience: The Wild Asia exhibit.

It takes you on a journey through the jungles of Southeast Asia and forests of the Himalayan mountains.

Once inside, you might hear a the low baritone bellow of tiger growls, or   "whooping" duet of the vocal gibbons. And if you listen closely, you may even hear the swift twittering of our red pandas, according to the zoo's website.

Lush tree canopies add to the ambiance while offering shade as guests roam throughout this exotic adventure, the zoo said.
