Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens opened at our current location in 1975 with just 38 animals.
Today, there are over 500 animals being cared for at the Zoo representing nearly 200 species, from tiny insects to the tallest land mammal, the giraffe. The animals we exhibit serve as ambassadors for their wild cousins. Click on one of the categories to the right to learn more about the animals at the Zoo.
