Chicago Zoos, Aquariums, & Wildlife Centers
Brookfield Zoo Animal Pictures
The Brookfield Zoo is a sprawling area located just minutes outside city limits in -- where else -- Brookfield, Illinois. It's home to a dizzying variety of animal species, and its use of natural barriers and moats is so much more relaxing and enjoyable than watching a lion pace back and forth in a cage. The absence of bars also makes for great wildlife photo opportunities.
