Our animals

Dresden Zoo is home to around 1,400 animals representing 243 species. In addition to visitor favourites like the giraffes, African elephants, lions, Humboldt penguins and koalas, the zoo focuses on keeping and breeding endangered animals and rarely displayed Asian animals. Dresden Zoo boasts an extensive collection of native and European small birds, the likes of which is rarely found in other zoos. Some of the birds have also been very successfully bred. In the Prof. Brandes house, visitors can find rarely displayed tree dwellers. These include brown woolly monkeys, southern tamanduas, Prevost’s squirrels and crowned lemurs, which are now only found in one other zoo in Germany, namely Erfurt Zoo.

A selection of our animal residents is presented in our animal index.
