Aside from watching the twenty-two gorillas in action, visitors can enjoy and learn about mandrills, DeBrazza's monkeys, and red river hogs living in naturalistic habitats throughout seemingly contiguous outdoor exhibits. Indoor habitats are home to Wolf's monkeys, reptiles, fish, and invertebrates.
The dry riverbeds of Baboon Reserve feature a simulated archaeological dig where visitors can learn about the evolution of gelada baboons. A field station affords impressive views of baboons and Nubian ibex co-existing on an Ethiopian-style mountain range.
The Bengali Express, a two-mile-long monorail trip through the dark forests and open meadows of the elephant, rhino, antelope, and Siberian tiger.
The World of Darkness, where night is day for bats, bush babies, sugar gliders, and other nocturnals. The famous Reptile House, where crocodiles, pythons, frogs, and others hop and slither about. Visitors will also enjoy the World of Birds, Skyfari, Wild Asia, African Plains, MouseHouse, and much more.
There is also the Children's Zoo, where kids can pet and feed domestic animals. Here they can also be animals by climbing a spider's web, crawling through a prairie dog tunnel, trying on a turtle shell, or escaping like a lizard down a hollow tree. Pretty cool.
As the world’s largest urban zoo, the Bronx Zoo features more than 600 species from around the globe. Meet some of our mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and insects, and learn about their natural history, biology, cultural roles, and conservation status.
