Journey to the Amazon rainforest!
You will get excited when you see the South American giant river otter. Did you know that this incredible animal can reach lengths of up to six feet long when full-grown?
Wait until you meet the Titi monkeys who mate for life, and can typically be seen sitting or sleeping in pairs with their tails intertwined.
Of course, a howler monkey’s cry, often heard at a distance of up to two or three miles away, will keep you amazed as you walk through this new exhibit.
These three animals are just some of the fun and fascinating creatures you will discover in the Zoo’s awe-inspiring new rainforest exhibit. We don’t want you to miss out on your old favorites like the giant anteater, Chilean flamingos and white-faced saki – who will also call the new rainforest home. Whether you are interacting with toucans and troupials (troupials are a large passerine bird species found in Central America and tropical South America) inside the exhibit’s free-flight aviary or viewing an anaconda and colorful tropical fish, this immersive wildlife experience will take you on a journey to the depths of the Amazon Rainforest. Adults and children will discover how these diverse species, big and small, create the complex ecosystem rainforests thrive on, and learn what we can all do to ensure they survive.
