The Tropic Zone At The Central Park Zoo: E64
The Tropic Zone offers a two tiered rain forest exhibit with twisting vines and waterfalls to make it all the more realistic.
There are birds of various species including Turquoise Tanagers, Saffron Finches, Fairy Bluebirds, Sun Bitterns, Violet Turacos and Rodrigues fruit bats and others fly freely in the hot steamy environment. A larger glassed in exhibit with a rocky mountainous terrain is home to the long haired Colobus monkeys.
It is accompanied there by smaller exhibits of toucans, pythons geckos, piranhas, small alligators, bats and many other small tropical animals. The Black Lion Tamarin monkeys of the Brazilian rain forest once thought to be extinct until
they were rediscovered in 1970 have their own smaller habitat on the second tier which they share with the Golden headed and Cotton-top Tamarin.
