Land of the Jaguar
Now Open

Land of the Jaguar is more than jaguars! The exhibit encompasses 2.5 acres and showcases the magnificent animals, architecture, and culture of Latin America. Over 40 species of mammals, birds, and reptiles are featured.

Just beyond the zoo entrance, towering Mayan ruins beckon you to explore life on a different continent. Monkeys, birds, and a coati welcome you into the lush surroundings. After crossing a new bridge over the water, you are greeted by the new flock of Chilean flamingos.

A meandering path carries you through an Amazonian village where the jaguar, giant anteater, caiman, ocelot and more await. Your journey will end at the mountain’s edge with the spectacular Andean bear and Andean condor.
