Twycross Zoo - Follow Your Heart

Opening Times: 10am - 6pm

Apes

Animals come in all shapes and sizes, from leopards to lemurs, parrots to prairie dogs and tortoises to tarantulas.  Twycross Zoo cares for around 500 animals of 125 species of bigger animals, including many endangered species, plus hundreds of creepy crawlies too. Renowned as a specialist primate zoo, we care for a wide variety of monkeys and apes, and are the only zoo in the UK where you can see all types of great ape – gorilla, orang utan, chimpanzee and bonobo (you should be able to spot some humans too!). There’s plenty to see, from favourites including meerkats and penguins, to the Amur leopard, the world’s rarest big cat.

Many of our animals are part of Conservation Breeding Programmes which help ensure a future for species on the brink of extinction.
