Africa Pathway Closed

The pedestrian pathway to Africa is currently closed due to construction on our elephant exhibit. Africa will only be accessible by tram, which is free to all guests during this time. Thank you for your patience while we improve your Zoo.

Eastern Black Rhinoceros

Rhino Mud bath


The black rhinoceros can be distinguished by its pointed, prehensile upper lip; white rhinoceros have square lips. Black Rhino populations are tragically listed as Critically Endangered due to the illegal trade in its horn for traditional medicine. Fetching tens of thousands of dollars and promoting the poaching of this enigmatic species. You can find our black rhinos near the chimpanzee’s in Africa.
