Camel & Zebra

Camel & Zebra

Camel & Zebra area features naturalistic outdoor habitats shaded by century-old trees and tailored to a wide range of ungulates, large birds, marsupials, and other mammals. Many of the species in this four-acre space have adapted to survive extreme climates, such as the Bactrian camels and Sichuan takins that thrive in Chicago’s cold winters.

Commitment to Care
