Staten Island Z00
Staten Island Zoo
After years of planning and development, the Staten Island Zoo's new "African Savannah" exhibit is open to the public. The state-of-the-art facility highlights a number of exotic animals, all native to the vast grasslands of central and southern Africa. Leopards, mandrills, lizards, and antelope join several lesser know species in a amazingly realistic representation of the African plains. The savannah is a world of incredible diversity. Warm year-round, this tropical grassland's seasons are marked with extreme changes in rainfall. The creatures which inhabit this part of the world are especially suited, or adapted, to live here. It is this precise match of form, function, and environment which the Zoo attempts to highlight in the African Savannah.
The Staten Island Zoo welcomes this addition to their other exhibits. While there are not the "larger" animals here, there is plenty to see and do.
