Animals & Exhibits
Featured animal exhibits include a walk-through aviary with a variety of bird species in free-flight, the Barnyard with contact corral, and Secrets of the Forest showcasing native reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates.
Come welcome Sumo and Shifu, our new Red panda brothers, and watch them settle into their new home. Red pandas are an endangered species and a relative rarity in zoos. We are excited and honored to care for these two amazing creatures from across the world! Click here for more information about the Sequoia Park Zoo's Red pandas.
Walk in a free-flight zone.
Become a part of the excitement as you step into the Nancy Hilfiker Memorial aviary. Spot local and tropical birds as they perch and fly past, and enjoy listening for their distinctive songs in a natural setting.
Make Connections at the Barnyard.
Our hands-on Barnyard offers fun for kids of all ages. Meet donkeys, alpacas, rabbits and more. Mingle with goats and sheep in the Contact Corral, explore our one-of-a-kind barn and check out the interactive Kids' Koop for indoor fun on the farm. Don't miss our spider exhibit where you can see a black widow and other native species or try crawling on a giant web and moving like a spider.
Discover the Secrets of the Forest.
Learn about our beautiful and complex local ecosystem at this interactive indoor exhibit. Find out how banana slugs move, watch a king snake bask, and see native pond turtles swim underwater. Use a spotting scope to find animals hidden in the forest canopy, peek inside a hollow log to hunt for critters, learn about our local watershed and how to be a salmon saver, and so much more!
Watch our Spider monkeys swinging around and admire our endangered Cotton-topped tamarins. Marvel at our Chacoan peccaries' wiggly snouts and learn more about the exotic Patagonian cavy- the world's second largest rodent. Listen for the distinctive call of our White-handed gibbons or discover if our American black bear is taking a dip in her pond. The Sequoia Park Zoo is full of unique and exciting species.
Remember Bill the Chimp in Bill’s Garden.
Visit Bill’s Garden where the chimpanzee exhibit was formerly located and pay tribute to the Zoo’s most famous and beloved residents, Bill & Ziggy. You’ll enjoy their story told in photos, and learn about the Zoo’s history and future as well. Read messages on the brick walkway and take your family’s photo in front of Bill’s statue. It’s a great place to relax and share memories of Bill and Zoo visits of years past. Click here for more information on Bill.
