The Little Rock Zoo has long been one of Arkansas' great treasures. It all began modestly in 1926, with just two animals, an abandoned timber wolf and a circus-trained brown bear. Today, the Zoo has grown to include more than 725 animals representing 200+ species, many on the endangered list. The Zoo itself, has become one of the state's greatest educational and conservation resources.
Many exotic worlds are yours to explore at the Little Rock Zoo. Experience the majesty of elephants and rhinos. Stick your neck out at the Giraffe exhibit. Marvel at the strength and beauty of lions, tigers and jaguars in our Big Cat Habitat. Monkey around at Spider Monkey or Lemur Islands. Or slither around to the Reptile House to go face-to-fang with a deadly reptile. Don't forget to visit the Children's Farm where you can get up-close to the animals. With new animal exhibits on the way, special events and educational programs, the Zoo provides an ever-changing and recreational experience. Whenever you visit, chances are you'll see something new and exciting! We look forward to seeing you at the Little Rock Zoo.
