On the Great Rock @ Budapest Zoo

There are only three institutions in Europe where You can see the 'Hagenbeck-style' rocks: Budapest Zoo, Hamburg Zoo and Vincennes Zoo, Paris. This rock was built at Budapest between 1909-1912, but after the Word War II visitors hadn’t got the possibility to walk on its pathways … but thanks to the renovation just a few months ago, visitors currently can climb this 34 meter height artificial rock again. Photo taken June 2008.

      Do any animals live on or around the rock?
    • Orycteropus
      Yes, there are many other photos connecting with this rock in my gallery, f.e Western lowland gorillas, Striped hyena, Red pandas, Sloth bears (haven't arrived yet), Dholes (haven't arrived yet), Barbary sheeps & Barbary apes mixing (this is partly on the rock) The enclosures of these mentioned species are all around this big rock, connecting to that ... but on the walkway what You can see in this picture there are no animal displays ...
    There are no comments to display.
