Located in the stream bed which is found just entering the village (by the Puente San Miguel Road), it is a biological complex where hundreds of species live together in a singular environment; from the bison to the donkey, from reptiles to butterflies, in a space with exuberant vegetation and colours.

 

     It is important in its didactical and research areas, with different programmes of preservation and reproduction of endangered species.

 

WHY YOU MUST VISIT THE ZOO?

 

Because you will walk in a tropical jungle, among hundreds of precious living butterflies and dozens of exotic orchids.
 

   

 

Because you could see how more than 100 snakes are fed (or even you could touch them, if you dare). This summer more than 50 will born in the nursery and you will see the birth if you want.

 

Because there are some of the rarest and most and beautiful primates of the world: orang-utans from Sumatra, chimpanzees, lemurs, cercopitecs, mandrills, capuchins, tamarines… a lot of them with their babies.

 

Because you will also see a lot of different animals from all over the world: Snow leopards, Tigers from Sumatra, Bears, Tarantulas, Scorpions, Fishes… thousands of animals from more than 450 species!

 

 

 

Because you will see a unique spectacle:  1200 herons and storks, that live free near the zoo, come back in the dusk to rest. The tops of the trees suddenly get full of hundreds of precious birds.

 

Because in the farm of the zoo the kids will be able to know the races of hens and rabbits, the pigs from Vietnam, the donkeys, the goats, and another animals. There is also a market garden, fruit trees

 

                   

Because there are more than 300 trees, from 60 species, just as in a botanical garden.

 

Because with your visit you contribute to the programmes of preservation of endangered species.
