For those who want to photograph exotic animals, but can't travel to Africa, South America, and other far-away locations, the zoo (or a local museum) is a great substitute. You can photograph exotic species at close range, with minimal expense, and nearly any equipment. I have taken many great photos at the zoo, and if you arrive early in the morning, you may beat the crowds and get some great golden-yellow light.
When you decide to go, plan your trip on a day you know the animals will be active. Don't go on really cold or really hot days, or in adverse weather conditions.
And remember, not all animals at the zoo are in the zoo! The anole (lizard) in the photo was not a captive animal. I have also seen black rat snakes, unusual birds, and other animals there in the wild because they prefer similar habitats to the artificial habitats made for captive animals.
Metadata for anole: ISO 640, f/7.1, 1/100th of a second
Metadata for bird: ISO 640, f/7.1, 1/800th of a second
Both with Nikon D-80 and 180mm macro lens. Tripod for bird, bellypod for anole.

P.S. If you photograph animals indoors, don't forget to adjust your white balance for flourescent and incandescent lights!
