Fun new features are in the works for Tucson's Reid Park Zoo.

This week the zoo announced a new 10-year master plan to expand experiences for visitors and habitats for the animals.

Phase one will include a new Asia themed area including a reptile house for a Komodo dragon.

Phase two will take you on a safari of Africa with an underwater hippo viewing area and rhino encounter. 

Phase three will focus on South America with a temple of tiny monkeys and a new playground. 

There will also be an expansion of the gift shop.
