The rhino is currently off exhibit. We are working on new training with him behind-the-scenes to help enhance his welfare but are working hard to get him back on exhibit as soon as possible.
Renovation update: Elephant Overlook is closed due to construction. Giraffe Feeding Station is closed but giraffes can still be seen inside Giraffe House or in their newly renovated outdoor yard. For more information about our exciting project, please visit: http://www.marylandzoo.org/africanjourney.
Winter has not slowed us down! Progress on the lion, giraffe and elephant habitat renovations continue and in the update below you’ll start to see some of the most exciting features of the new spaces (like floor to ceiling glass viewing windows for lions and new places to get eye to eye with elephants) taking shape.
Exciting progress is being made at the lion habitat. The glass for the new viewing windows has now been installed!
