St. Louis Zoo

Welcome to the Saint Louis Zoo.

The newest exhibit at the zoological park is Grizzly Ridge.

The exhibit is home to two grizzly bears.

They were doing some training with a couple of their keepers.

The two bears, Huck and Finley, are still adolescents so they'll be much bigger when they are full grown.

Penguin Coast is home to several varieties of penguins.

Really like how open the exhibit is and how close you can get to the penguins.

The Conservation Carousel.

A very large silver back out in the Ape exhibit.

Orangutan in the Fragile Forrest exhibit. 

Sea Lion Sound is one of the more popular exhibits in the park.

the underwater viewing tube provides some fun visuals

They really like interacting with the park guests.

Up in Big Cat Country, the leopard was out.

The popular tiger decided it was nap time.

The lion was talking quite a bit with the park guests.

Moving on to the Red Rocks, the zebras were all outside today.  The park has quite a few in two different enclosures.

The camels were very active today.


The giraffes were busy eating every time I went by their enclosure


Red Kangaroo.  I wish the zoo would create a better viewing exhibit for them.
