Under Construction at Alexandria Zoo. Opening September 28
The South American area renovation, Land of the Jaguar, is an extensive multi-species habitat featuring jaguars, spectacled bears, ocelots, monkeys, crocodiles, anteaters, and much more!
Visitors will be immersed in a unique environment created with giant rocks, rivers, waterfalls, lush vegetation and South American structures as they journey through the Mayan ruins of Central America, the Amazon rain forests, and end up at the edge of the Andes Mountains.
The Land of the Jaguar is the largest project the zoo has undertaken since the Louisiana Habitat exhibit. The area includes the oldest section of the zoo, which has not been updated since the 1970s.
