Zoo Animals

Residents living the Riverview area of Norfolk, VA aren't surprised when they look out their kitchen window and see an Elephant walk by. They aren't even rattled when a Lion's emphatic roar wakes them up in the middle of the night. 

Most of the people consider the jungle sounds that echo throughout the neighborhood just one of the many quirky perks that come along with living next door to the Virginia Zoo.

The Virginia Zoological Park is home to almost 400 zoo animals and is one of our favorite attractions because of it's close proximity to Virginia Beach.


Here's a list of zoo animals who call the Virginia Zoo home:


Your support makes the Virginia Zoological Park a better place for our animal friends! Be sure to take a ride aboard the Norfolk Southern Express train ride. Kids love it! Plus, all of the proceeds from the train ticket sales go towards enriching and expanding upon all of the animal exhibits

Additional zoo animals and reptiles include salamanders, snakes, frogs, Black-masked Lovebirds, Helmeted Guinea Fowl, Taveta golden weavers and a long list of invertebrates.
