Tropical America

Take a walk in the jungle in the Frances V.R. Seebe Tropical America building!

The sights and sounds of toucans, monkeys, orchids, piranhas and big-leaf plants bring the tropics to Albuquerque.

Tropical America is also home to Micronesian kingfishers (Todiramphus cinnamominus) from Guam and Socorro doves (Zenaida graysoni) from an island off the coast of Mexico. These birds are extinct in the wild. But behind the scenes at the zoo, chicks are hatching.
