Indoor Exhibits

All indoor zoo exhibits are now open with the exception of the USS Antiquities cave, which remains closed for renovations.

The Rosamond Gifford Zoo is home to more than 700 animals representing over 200 species. From our smallest invertebrate species  to our largest mammal (Asian elephant), the zoo offers unique opportunities to view some of the world's most iconic - and endangered - animals engaging in their natural behaviors in surroundings modeled after their wild habitats.

The zoo is open year-round, 362 days a year. About 60 percent of exhibits are indoors (although the cave housing aquariums, reptile and amphibian exhibits is temporarily closed for renovations). Outdoor exhibits remain open for the winter and include species chosen for their ability to adapt to our CNY climate. (Note: In cases of extremely inclement weather, outdoor animals may not be on view.)
