Meet Our Animals

Amur Tiger

Amur tigers are also known as the Siberian, Manchurian, Altaic, Korean, North China, or Ussuri tiger.

Black Rhinoceros

These large mammals live in the bush country, grasslands, and woodlands of Africa.


Sometimes confused with leopards, cheetahs have spots instead of rosettes. Cheetahs also have distinctive markings on their face, known as tear stripes.


Flamingos are widely known for their beautiful vibrant feathers. Males are taller and weigh more than females.

Kunekune pig

Kunekune pigs are a relatively small breed of pig, reaching weights of around 120 to 240 pounds. They are native to New Zealand.

Masai Giraffe

The Masai giraffe, also known as the Kilimanjaro giraffe, is the largest subspecies of giraffe and the tallest land mammal on earth.

Polar Bear

The polar bear is native to the Arctic Ocean and its surrounding seas. It is the largest carnivore found on land.


From collaring elephants for research in southern Africa, to rescuing an orphaned cross-eyed seal on the east coast, no conservation effort is too big or too far for the Zoo. After all, conservation is at the core of everything we do.
