In 1972, the zoo was moved to its current location, inside Casa de Campo. It is situated very near the Parque de Atracciones. Since then, it has been renovated and enlarged several times.
The zoo has numerous mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles. But the most important inhabitant of the zoo is Chulin, the first giant panda born by artificial insemination outside China.
Various animal shows are organized throughout the year. The most popular are the dolphin show, the sea lion show, birds of prey show and exotic bird show.
If you’re interested in any of these exhibitions, we recommend checking when they take place as soon as you get to the zoo, so that you can plan your visit accordingly.
