Meet the Zoo Animals

We've over 750 animals (give or take a few!) and over 100 different types (or species) of animal at our zoo.

From the weird to the wonderful. From the smallest to the tallest.

We’ve put together a list of some of the zoo animals at Folly Farm. An animal A-Z. You can see all the zoo animals below or if you know which animal you’re looking for, just click on the letter. In our zoo animals pages, you’ll learn loads about each zoo animal. Where they come from. How long they live. What they like to eat. And you’ll be able to amaze your friends with our fun and interesting animal facts.
