It's the Year of the Dragon (and a whole lotta other creatures) at the LA Zoo.

In Chinese astrology, the dragon symbolizes strength, power, wisdom, nobility, good fortune, and success. 

Wushu Shaolin Entertainment presents a spectacular dragon dance, as well as traditional fan dancing, martial arts performances, and calligraphy demonstrations.

Many animals of the 12-year Chinese zodiac can be found at the Zoo. Guests can  view and take a photo of the Zoo-diac Tour map in the Zoo’s Entry Plaza to find them all during their visit. Guests can also add their hopes and dreams for the new year to the Wall of Wishes.
