Since opening last December, the Houston Zoo's African Forest habitat has drawn thousands of visitors to marvel at the latest addition, years in the making, spread out over six and a half acres. Populated with charismatic families of chimpanzees, giraffes and white rhinos, the African Forest also educates visitors about the plight of the real African Forest, and challenges them to locate the mythical "Koolakamba," a sort of African yeti. Best of all, it's a high-tech forest, meaning you can watch the rhinos' antics from the air-conditioned comfort of your home or office via the 24-hour Webcam.
