    Utah's Hogle ZooHogle Zoo Salt Lake City, Utah
    Hogle Zoo occupies 42 acres in Salt Lake City, Utah, and is the biggest zoo in the state, housing animals from many diverse ecosystems and found at the mouth of Emigration Canyon, after being founded and operated by the Hogle family in 1931. It was originally located in the city's Liberty Park, before being moved to its current site, and its elephant named Alice would have the first and only Asian elephant born in the state. His name would be Prince Utah, but sadly, he would pass on less than a year later. Their exhibits now include monkeys, three elephants with one of them a baby, mammals, deer, many birds and reptiles from across the globe, officially becoming the Hogle Zoo when it opened at the canyon location in 1931, on land donated by Mr. and Mrs. James Hogle, although the city now owns and operates it.
