City: Municipio de Medellin
Founded on March 11, 1960, the park houses animals from America, Asia and Africa. They have a faunal wealth of incalculable proportions if you consider that many of the species from this collection are about to disappear from the face of the earth. Among the representatives of the animal kingdom the zoo exhibits and most popular among visitors are rhinos, lions, Bengal tigers, zebras, spectacled bears, harpy eagles, hippos and chimpanzees. Also, in addition to the animals, the zoo proudly displays more than five hundred trees and shrubs, among which are cited palm fruit, Samana, acacias, vases, coal, urapanes, guayacanes, kapok trees and gualanday, among others, and to consolidate it as one of the most wooded city, a situation of great importance to the high pollution levels that characterize the industrial zone of the Aburrá Valley.
