Cougar Mountain Zoo

As strange as it may sound, at Cougar Mountain Zoo, you just might be greeted by a big cat purring. Cougars are among the largest cats capable of true purring, and Cougar Mountain Zoo boasts a distinct subspecies of these overgrown felines, which prowl all over the zoo's award-winning World of Cougars exhibit. Visitors to the exhibit don't just admire the animals from afar; zoo staff facilitate close interaction with the Cougars under strict safety standards, providing a uniquely intimate experience.

Next to the mountain lions dwell their distant cousins, Bengal tigers, who sprawl out on the green grass or press their noses up to a thick wall of glass separating visitors from the wild animals. Other residents of the zoo include a barrel of endangered lemurs from Madagascar, a crowd of fluffy alpacas, and the country's largest herd of Siberian reindeer, who star in the Annual Issaquah Reindeer Festival and assist Santa during the holiday season.

The zoo also boasts a collection of bronze animal statues, a library of wildlife tracks, and a museum that explores not only the world of wildlife, but also the threats they face from human incursion.

Nice Picnic area by the zoo.
Dawn B. · February 8, 2016
Loved it! All the people here were very nice and willing to share information about the animals. We did the Lemur encounter and it was well worth the Groupon price! My favorite are the tigers and the cougars! Make sure you check out the various birds, even was able to buy a tail feather from one of the amazon parrots to take home in the gift shop! Beautiful Non-profit Zoo with a view of Lake Sammamish and the Cascades! Five Stars!
