Things are going just plain batty at Audubon Zoo!
As a result, a head-spinning experience awaits visitors to the Zoo’s new nocturnal house — the premier attraction in the expanded, Central America-themed Jaguar Jungle exhibit making its debut on Friday March 23!

Inside the “Criaturas de la Noche’’ (Creatures of the Night) Bat House, guests will get a glimpse of a jungle teeming with life after nightfall as they gaze into a 42-foot, transparent flyway filled with more than 200 Seba’s short-tailed bats and get a close-up look at other animals that thrive in the dark.

The nocturnal house roster also includes vampire bats, ringtail cats, red-eyed tree frogs, giant cave roaches, Anthony’s poison arrow frogs, Costa Rican zebra tarantulas and engaging douroucouli – also known as Nancy Ma’s night owl monkeys.

Outside the Bat House, a herd of five Alpaca, a domesticated South American species similar to llamas, will roam inside another new exhibit next to a spacious Maya Village plaza where families can relax.

Other features in the expanded Jaguar Jungle include the addition of Maya artifacts, a new children’s play area featuring a climbing structure, space for education and cultural presentations and new restrooms.

We hope to see you on the 23rd, new adventures await!
