Find fascinating animals with unique lifestyles.



Exhibit Update

The Adaptations Building will be closed for construction beginning in November 2023 and a new exhibit experience is scheduled to open in late September 2024. The existing Komodo dragon area will remain open to visitors through most of the construction.


Look up, down and all around to find the fascinating animals of the Trail of Adaptations showing off what makes each species so unique. Meerkats scurry underground when not on sentinel duty watching over their mob. Indian flying fox fruit bats flap in the canopy and go bump in the night nearby other nocturnal animals including sloths and tamandua.
