Many cities have zoos but Fargo-Moorhead's Red River Zoo specializes in rare and endangered species. Sichuan takin, Chinese red pandas, east Asian tur, and raccoon dogs are some of the unusual species that you won't find in many zoos anywhere else in America. The Red River Zoo is also one of the world centers for breeding red pandas. Because of the climate, which closely replicates their home, the red pandas have had several successful births and the zoo is now home to 2 pairs that need to reproduce in order to help save this vanishing creature. The Zoo is also home to the Diederich Carousel, an antique attraction restored to its original hand-painted beauty and function.
