You are off on an adventure! What will you find? How about elephants and gibbons along with all of their friends? See who you can spot on your Asian Adventure.
Niabi Zoo is the only zoo in Illinois with elephants. The elephant is earth's largest land animal, and Asian elephants are listed as endangered. Asian elephants can be identified by their smaller, rounded ears. One of our elephants, Babe, is even an artist; check out her custom elephant paintings.
Male and female gibbons sing beautiful duets together each morning to announce their territory and can be heard up to a mile away. Buffed-cheeked gibbons are part of the ape family and are native to Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.
