Nocturnal section @ Budapest Zoo

The nocturnal exhibit is on the floor of the Kangaroo House. Species You can see there are the followings: Brazilian agoutis, Douroucoulis, Northern tree shrew, Javan ferret badger (the only location (at least in Europe) where You can see this species), Egyptian friut bats, Woodland dormouses and three marsupials: Brush-tailed rat-kangaroo, Common brushtail possums and Ground cuscuses. There were Kowaris some years earlier. The space is not too large for these species, but this inside exhibits are well designed. There is a plan that this section will move to the Kós Birdhouse, and instead there will be a new exhibit for venomous snakes. Photo taken June 2008.

      The Kangaroo House was transformed into a new exhibit, called ’Venomous House’, which is one of the biggest exhibit of its kind in Europe at present. The new Komodo Dragon exhibit was established on the ground level of the building, and upstairs (which formerly was the nocturnal section of the zoo) 16 species of venomous snakes are on display at the moment. Budapest Zoo working as a breeding background and quarantine and rescue centre for venomous snakes as well.

      Other, non-venomous species, like Prevost’s Squirrels and Babirusas are also on public display at downstairs.

      The new exhibit officially opened on the 26th of June 2009.
