Lions and tigers and…kangaroos? Oh my!
The Cat Walk exhibit features felines, plus a few other animals, from around the world.
- Walk under the prowling mountain lions from North America.
- Watch a young Asian snow leopard play.
- Listen to the roar of an African lion.
- Look for the ocelot from South America hidden in the brush.
Although these cats come from different places, they have a few things in common. They are excellent hunters with sharp claws and teeth, keen eyesight, acute hearing and sensitive whiskers. Many are nocturnal and most are solitary.
The Cat Walk area is also where you can meet an African-crested porcupine out on a walk, watch rock hyraxes scale a miniature cliff, see meerkats keeping guard over their burrows, and look for a baby joey in a kangaroo’s pouch.
