Pathway to Asia
Pathway to Asia
Big Cats, Bigger Spaces
The new tiger habitat will give the big cats more room to roam while you look with wonder as these magnificent carnivores rest atop a lush landscaped hill. Enjoy the calming sounds of a bubbling waterfall and stream flowing into a sparkling pool perfect for a feline swim. Come closer for a view like none other as you “touch” the tigers through glass in a dynamic underwater experience set against a backdrop of ancient temple ruins.
Make a New Feathered Friend
When you enter the new interactive aviary in Asia, you’ll be immersed in vibrant colors and friendly activity. You’ll meet ring-necked parakeets, spotted doves, red-whiskered bulbuls, silkie chickens, and golden pheasants as you walk through their aviary on the winding pathways.
Sing with the Siamangs
The loud, melodious calls of the siamangs will draw you to an oasis unlike any other in the Zoo as you wind through the pathways towards the new primate habitat! You’ll marvel at their swinging overhead acrobatics as the siamangs rhythmically fly above you from poles to ropes with their three-foot-long arm span. The harmonic sounds of running water will add a soothing counterpoint as you watch the apes explore their spacious new home.
A New Home for the Smooth and Scaly Residents
A trip to Asia would not be complete without meeting the largest lizard on earth. On this journey you’ll begin at the new Komodo dragon habitat, coming face-to-face with these reptiles that can reach up to 10 feet long! As you pass through to the new Reptile House, you’ll be greeted with a refreshing cool breeze. This new climate-controlled home will house snakes, amphibians, lizards and turtles, creating a comfortable space for guests and animals alike. The naturalistic habitats – large and small – are designed for each species’ individual needs. You’ll have a rare opportunity to see these reptiles up close and understand why they are an important part of the ecosystem. As you continue your adventure through Asia, you will be welcomed by a colony of fruit bats hanging in their spacious habitat.
