From the plains of Africa to the jungles of Asia, the Virginia Zoo is a world of discovery waiting for you. Open year round, the Zoo offers fun, education and excitement for everyone.

Meet elephants, tigers, kangaroos, red pandas and more. Kids can go nose-to-nose with prairie dogs through viewing bubbles in their interactive habitat.

The Virginia Zoo is home to more than 500 animals, on 53 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. Preview below some of our animals, great and small, but be sure to come visit the Zoo and meet everyone in person!
