Our Animals

monicaFrom mighty Monica, an African elephant, to our flock of small love birds, the Virginia Zoo is home to over 350 of our furry, feathered and scaly animal friends. Our animals include exotic representatives from the African savannah, as well as friendly goats that you would find on a Virginia farm. Come spend a day with us in the animal kingdom.
