While zoos recreate natural habitats, they must separate the animals to keep chimpanzees from taunting elephants and jaguars and leopards from noticing that they wore the same outfit.

  • For $10, you get two admission tickets (up to a $20 value)

Originally established in 1875, The Buffalo Zoo invites guests to enter a variety of exhibits featuring biomes from the Americas, Australia and Asia, and Africa filled with vegetation and mammals, reptiles, amphibians, birds, and fish in recreations of their regional climates. Depending on the season, visitors wander zoo grounds past a craggy sea lion cove, admire adjacent lion and tiger habitats, feed giraffes, and watch zebra and addax as they nibble grass into caricatures of zoo guests. Rainforest Falls, a four-season exhibit, recreates various levels of South American climate. Visitors traverse arboreal ramps and overlooks to formally introduce themselves to tree-dwelling squirrel monkeys, scarlet ibis, and vampire bats, or to peer down to the forest floor at capybara, ocelot, and giant river turtles. The Heritage Farm children’s exhibit gathers pigs, sheep, and a mule around an authentic 1800s barn, and demonstrates 19th century life on the Erie Canal without the butter churning duels involved in most historical demonstrations. The Buffalo Zoo also participates in the AZA’s Species Survival Plan to further its aims of animal and plant conservation. The zoo remains open during all weather conditions.

Buffalo Zoo

The third-oldest zoo in the United States, the Buffalo Zoo was originally founded in 1875, and is the highest attended cultural institution in the region. A great year-round family destination, the Zoo opens at 10 a.m. daily (gates close at 4 p.m.)

Animal species serving as education and conservation ambassadors include the Asian elephant, Western Lowland gorilla, African lion, Indian rhinoceros, and giraffe. And, at the brand-new Arctic Edge, presented by Tops Friendly Markets, celebrity polar bear Luna and her mother Anana await your visit.

They were close to finishing up some improvements so we missed a few things but it was well worth it. Have to make sure to go during giraffe feeding time. Groupon makes it a great deal. Check their website before you go; they do close early periodically. We happened to catch one of those days!
