The experience

There's something for everyone at the Bronx Zoo! This world-famous wildlife park boasts more than 6,000 animals across a sprawling 265 acres. Award-winning exhibits allow guests the chance to experience the wonder of wildlife in naturalistic settings and meet exotic, endangered animals from around the globe. Don't miss acclaimed attractions such as Congo Gorilla Forest, JungleWorld, Madagascar and Tiger Mountain. Take a spin on the Bug Carousel or enjoy visiting with rowdy sea lions as they enjoy a mid-day snack. Seasonal attractions include Butterfly Garden, Children's Zoo, and the Wild Asia Monorail that takes you on a ride past elephants, rhinos, wild horses and more.

Visit the Bronx Zoo's newest habitat, "Amazing Monitors," which features Komodo dragons (Varanus komodoensis) - the world's largest living species of lizard. Fully grown, adult males can reach nine feet from nose to tail, and tip the scales at 360 pounds. The Bronx Zoo has three Komodo dragons, two female and one male. Individuals will rotate through the indoor exhibit throughout the day. At more than five feet in length, the dragons are adolescents and yet to meet their full size and potential.
