The World of Animals and Plants
When in 1981 the ZOO joined the neighbouring botanical garden, zoological expositions connected with hundreds of rare plants and trees. And building zoogeografical expositions started as well. Animals live here in surroundings which correspond to their natural milieu in wilderness. They are divided from visitors only by a minimum of natural fences. You can visit Madagaskar, Sonor desert, American or African prairie, and many more exotic places here.
