Animals

Feathers, scales and fur—meet the Zoo’s wild residents.

ANIMALS AT THE ZOO

In 1975, the Central Florida Zoo settled into its new location along Lake Monroe. Today, our Zoo is home to more than 400 animals representing over 200 species, from tiny yet mighty scorpions, to graceful giraffes and even endangered Indian rhinos. Come meet some of our planet’s rarest animals and get to know the species in your own backyard a bit better, including the Florida black bear and the American alligator.
