Our Wonderful World of Water.
African penguins – (not currently at the Zoo)
Please note: Our penguin flock has moved to another AZA-accredited facility. They’re moving out of the Aquatics building to make way for brand-new exhibits for hippos and penguins and other species as a part of our “Making Waves” capital campaign!
Enjoy the second largest rodent in the world (after the capybara) and North America’s largest rodent!
Visit two reticulated pythons who are equally at home on the ground or in trees, and are also excellent swimmers!
Hippos – (not currently at the Zoo)
Please note: Our Nile hippos, Zambezi (23) and Kasai (17), are currently on an extended vacation to Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, MO. They will be gone while a new exhibit is built for them with funds raised from our “Making Waves” capital campaign.
