Description

Grooming each other atop a maze of branches in our Asian jungle, the ebony langurs defy expectations. Though most of this species is colored black, many of ours are orange, echoing a group on an island in Indonesia.

It's a Jungle in here

The jungles of Asia are home to amazing biodiversity - and JungleWorld reflects that truth by bringing you face to face with creatures ranging from ebony langurs to majestic leopards.

As people watch the gharials swim, bask, and interact with the other wildlife in the exhibit, we hope to raise awareness of the dire conservation needs of these animals in the wild."

For the Birds

In the Exhibit

White-cheeked Gibbon

This critically endangered species is native to Vietnam, Lao PDR, and China. Adult females are a buff color with a black crown, while males are black with light-colored cheeks.

Indian Gharial

JungleWorld’s gharials serve as ambassadors for their species as part of an ongoing conservation partnership with the Madras Crocodile Bank Trust Center for Herpetology.

Tapir

Tapirs enjoy water, and you can often find them wading in their pool. They have short, bristly hair similar to domestic pigs.

JungleWorld is our favorite place in the zoo. My family could watch the langur and gibbon families for hours. They’re fascinating, and they have personalities and relationships just like we do. They’re much better climbers, though.
