Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo


The zoo is celebrating 90 years of going wild with all new faces–Chacoan Peccary, Baby Ocelot, Two Lynxes, Vampire Bats, Eagles, Snowy Owls, and more! Spend an hour or the whole day and see more than 300 animals representing North and South American species. Learn about endangered and threatened species, visit the year-round Victorian Greenhouse, explore the exotic New World Rainforest with free-flight aviary, and swing by the prairie dog exhibit with “pop up” viewing areas. Don’t miss our New England Farmyard and Hoofstock Trail, and take a ride on the carousel.
