London Zoo Reptile House
London Zoo, which opened in 1828, is situated on the north side of Regent's Park. The zoo was the site of the world's first children's zoo, which opened in 1938, followed by the first reptile house in 1849, the first public aquarium in 1853 and the first insect house in 1881. Today, London Zoo is home to around 12,000 animals, including Asian lions, Sumatran tigers, Sloth bears, Leadbeater's possums and Death adders.
In the Reptile House, visitors can see one of the largest collections of venomous snakes and reptiles in the UK; they can also see many nocturnal animals such as the Rodrigues fruit bat in the Moonlight World. The famous spiral-shaped Penguin Pool, which is Grade I listed, is the home of Black-footed penguins, whilst the Aquarium houses sharks, piranhas and other sea creatures.
London Zoo's Gardens and Sculptures
London Zoo also has beautiful gardens, as well as innovative zoo buildings, designed by architects such as Decimus Burton who designed the Giraffe House, Berthold Lubetkin who was responsible for the Penguin Pool and Sir Hugh Casson, responsible for the Elephant and Rhino Pavilion. London Zoo recently opened the Web of Life exhibition, which is an interactive display of animals around the world.
London Zoo contains a variety of sculptural works featuring animals. Most noticeable is Guy the Gorilla (1982), one of the most famous of all the inhabitants of the Zoo. The statue, by William Tymym, is near the main entrance by the Michael Sobell Pavillion for Monkeys and Apes.
London Zoo - An Educational Day Out
Today, London Zoo houses many of the Zoological Society of London's smaller animals including a wonderful range of reptiles, fish, invertebrates, birds and small mammals. Of the more than 650 species at London Zoo, 112 are listed as threatened in the Red data Books. London Zoo participates in breeding programmes for 130 species.
Younger visitors (or the young at heart!) can enjoy an encounter with farmyard favourites at the touch paddock in the Children's Zoo. Experience our 'Animals in Action' display. 30 minutes of flying, foraging and leaping action with animals showing their amazing natural skills and abilities.
