  • Arrive early. Plan to get here before we open at 10 a.m. to get the best parking spot.
  • Prepare to walk. The Zoo is 113 acres and features more than 1,000 animals. Strollers, manual wheelchairs, and electric wheelchairs are available for rent in the International Marketplace on a first come, first served basis.
  • Wear a hat and other sun protection. The Zoo is a lush oasis with plenty of shade, but you’re still going to want to be protected.
  • Don’t miss your chance to get close enough to actually touch animals by visiting Animals & You stations at 10:45, 11:45 daily (with an extra show at 12:45 on weekends) and Muriel’s Ranch petting zoo.
  • Visit the Zoo during the day… and night! Check-out Roaring Nights, a great opportunity for adults to enjoy after-hours Zoo access, live bands, special animal encounters, lawn games, and much more.
  • Read on for more not-to-be-missed highlights.

Soar With Wings of Wonder

Get to know the fascinating natural behaviors of some of our most “colorful” residents at the World of Birds Show daily (except Tuesdays) at 12:00 and 2:30. Presented by expert keepers in the Angela Collier Theater, this crowd-pleasing presentation features soaring avian feats of birds such as parrots, macaws, eagles, owls, hawks, and falcons – including several endangered species. During the show, you’ll have a chance to “chirp in” to support the L.A. Zoo’s work to protect and conserve endangered birds and other animals.

Welcome New Arrivals

Right now, you can see oodles of babies at the L.A. Zoo – like a takin calf (pictured), ibex and peninsular pronghorn foals, peccary piglets, chimpanzee and giraffe youngsters, and capuchin mini-monkeys, and a siamang baby. Some baby arrivals are happy surprises, but most are carefully planned as part of our efforts to save endangered and vulnerable species. Many species – including the iconic California condor – only survive today thanks to such programs. During your visit, you can learn about these animals and our efforts to safeguard them. You’ll also learn the effect of extreme cuteness on the human heart. (Warning: It may melt.)
