South America

Please be aware the South America habitats will be unavailable until reconstruction has been completed in Spring 2024.


As you make your way across the pedestrian bridge toward the South American region of the zoo, you will be greeted by dazzling and delightfully chatty macaws. These inquisitive birds are an excellent introduction to the splendors of Amazonian wildlife. Next, you’ll find one of the most endangered species of the forest, the cotton-topped tamarin and its cousin, the gold lion tamarin. As you stroll uphill, you will encounter some of the most magnificent birds in the world, from the noble king vulture to the resplendent scarlet ibis to the radiant sun conure. But don’t just look up. This is also home to the fascinating giant anteater.
