Don't miss our newest additions! The zoo is jam packed with babies right now and we want to make sure you know about them. Take a look and plan your trip.

Squirrel Monkeys

You can't miss the squirrel monkeys in the middle of the Children's Zoo. Pay extra close attention and you'll notice babies hitching rides on their moms' backs.

Markhor Kids

Take a ride on the Wild Asia Monorail to see the herd of Turkmenian flare-horned markhor. Included in the group are eight (yes, eight!) kids that were born this year.

Little Penguin

The little blue penguins, or fairy penguins, which live in the Aquatic Bird House, have successfully hatched their first chick! Not surprisingly, it's even smaller, and cuter, than the adults.

Silve Leaf Langur

We know what you're thinking, "that baby does not look silver." These monkeys are only orange for a short time before they transition to their namesake color. Hurry up and see them in their bright hued glory in JungleWorld.
