One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
A zoo at which visitors, especially children, may handle and feed the animals.

- ‘When Rowena and her sister were little, their father took them to a petting zoo and bravely went up and fed one of the llamas a handful of food pellets.’
- ‘One of the unique things about Fall Harvest is that it is actually a small, working farm, so children can interact with animals beyond the scope of the petting zoo by helping with feedings or collecting eggs from the hen house.’

- ‘In front of the store is a mini petting zoo filled with goats, chickens and other animals the kids can meet face to face.’
