Where else in L.A. can you find flamingos, ocelots and Madagascar hissing cockroaches all under one roof? For just $17, see more than 1,000 different species of plants and animals, with names as wild as their faces (shingleback skink, laughing kookaburra and tawny frogmouth, to name a few). Gawk at the mandrill, whose face looks like a Paint-by-Numbers accident, or commiserate with 97 percent human portion of the Bornean Orangutan in the recently spruced primate habitats. Open 7 days a week.
