The San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal Park hit the Web this week. The site allows users to explore places like the Gorilla Tropics habitat, visit Mombasa Lagoon to see animals such as a white alligator, and participate in interactive exhibits. "What's New" features baby faces only a mother could love.

For more cool science stuff, take a look at The Why Files. This page gives you the science behind the news, with hundreds of topics explained in detail, from "mad cow" disease to comets.

The "cool science image" area lets you see a butterfly's nose up close, and other, well, cool images from an electron microscope.

For more in-depth science information, check out Access Excellence. This is a page developed by the Biotech firm Genentech to help high school biology teachers understand the biotech industry.

The "What's News" area is full of well-written and easy to understand articles about current science issues, with an archive of hundreds more.

The resource list is a great collection of links to science Web sites, from NASA to interactive frog dissections.
