The firm Wednesday said users can now visit lion, tigers and (panda) bears on the Google Street View.

“Animal-lovers, rejoice! If you enjoy watching wildlife, but find yourself stuck in the urban jungle, never fear. You can now use Google Maps and Street View to preview the must-see spots at zoos around the world before heading there in person, or take a virtual trip to some of the most famous zoos and animal parks, right from your living room,” posted Deanna Yick, Street View Program Manager.
The firm announced that it had added China’s Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, world-renowned San Diego Zoo, in North America.  Google also welcomed South America’s Buin Zoo in Chile and Zoologico de Bauru in Brazil to our existing collection of global zoos and animal parks. While in Germany Zoo Safari Park Stukenbrock, and  Tierpark Hagenbeck, were also brought on board.
Users can Virtually explore the animal exhibits in Houston Zoo, Zoo Atlanta, in Chicago, the Chapultepec Zoo in Mexico, and the Toronto Zoo and Jungle Cat World Wildlife Park in Ontario, Canada. Those who want to view more exotic animals can check out tigers and kangaroos at the Shou Shan Zoo in Taiwan, polar bears and penguins at the Asahiyama Zoo in Japan, the world’s largest captive colony of orangutans at the Singapore Zoo, and giraffes, chimpanzees and even Asian elephants at the Taronga Zoo in Sydney, Australia.

Google Street View first started as an experimental project in the US in 2007 and has expanded its 360-degree panoramic views to include locations on all seven continents.
