Jardim Zoológico

Zoo in Zona Norte

Covering over 12 hectares, the zoo at Quinta da Boa Vista has a wide variety of reptiles, mammals and birds, mostly indigenous to Brazil. Special attractions include the large walk-through aviary and the night house, which features nocturnal animals. The monkey house is also a crowd favorite. Some animal enclosures are cramped, though overall the reproduced habitats are fairly well done.
