It's one of the biggest attractions in North Carolina -- the North Carolina Zoo in Asheboro. It is the largest natural habitat, walk-through zoo in the world.

    The claim that the NC Zoo is the largest natural-habitat walk-thru zoo in the world seems a little bit of a stretch. Only 500 acres of the land actually are used for the zoo, and there are fewer than 250 species represented in the zoo. So, by any objective measure, this zoo is not the largest in the world.
