Nice smaller zoo for kids. The kids always love to go and already know where everything is, so they look forward to visiting!

Friendly staff and a nice zoo. It is a bit small but they continue to add to their exhibits and it is well maintained. It's a great way to spend an hour or two. We enjoy it and Boo at the Zoo has become an annual Fall tradition for our family!

All the animals seemed very healthy and happy.. with the exception of the wolf. I'm thinking a roadrunner would put a smile on its face for sure !

From Our Editors

The Chattanooga Zoo opened its doors in 1937 with an exhibit containing two rhesus monkeys. Pretty soon, it had expanded to include bobcats, lions, and gators, until eventually becoming the venerable non-profit institution it is today, supporting conservation efforts for rare and endangered species around the world.

In the zoo's forest area, chimps, bobcats, and tortoises roam their habitats to the sound of churning water beneath two waterfalls. Red pandas scurry around a Himalayan habitat, and spider monkeys spin gossamer webs in the jungle area. Kids can play with goats and pot bellied pigs at the petting zoo, or take a few revolutions on the carousel. With a refurbished frame from 1927, it spins guests on the backs of hand-carved seats fashioned after endangered animals such as snow leopards and low lying gorillas.

Behind the scenes, the zoo's caretakers work to rehabilitate hundreds of animals each year so that they can return to the wild. They also lead conservation efforts for rare species—including snow leopards, fennec foxes, and cotton-top tamarins—and educate thousands of students annually with interactive events catered to school curricula.
