Our Animals & Plants

From gorillas to giraffes, rhinos to red pandas and flamingos to frogs, Paignton Zoo is home to dozens of different animal and plant species for you to discover.

All of our animals live in natural-themed exhibits and we are passionate about conserving them and their wild habitats for future generations. Paignton Zoo is also proud to be a registered botanical garden that houses many amazing plants.
