Zoo Train Temporarily Closed
The Zoo Train will be closed beginning on November 26th until mid-December while routine maintenance is performed on the tracks. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The African ground hornbill is a large, black, flighted yet ground dwelling species native to the plains regions of the African continent. Traveling in large family groups these prehistoric looking birds scour the ground in search of large insects, reptiles and small rodents to feed upon. You can find our ground hornbills in Africa near the lagoon.
