Today the zoo is home has approx 13 acres including a specialized area with Asian fauna – Visitors can view many different animals including snow leopards, fish and sand cats, Mishmi Takin, hog deer and the Chinese giant salamander.

Among the special attractions include the Africa House with elephants, mandrills and some tropical bird species, the savannah-like design of lions and Karakalanlage and the new giraffe house, where visitors can get eye to eye with the giraffes.

A new animal house with 1,125 square meters of floor space in the building and 13 700 square meters grounds was opened after a year of construction. The "Prof. Fire-house "offers the primates and the saltwater crocodile Max a larger and more modern accommodation.
