Nashville Zoo is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Your donations and visits support our mission to inspire a culture of understanding and discovery of our natural world through conservation, innovation and leadership.
Besides roaming our trails, grabbing a bite to eat, visiting our veterinary center, taking a spin on the carousel, feeding the lorikeets, and petting the goats - we have a variety of keeper talks and animal feedings scheduled weekly.
Here you will find our daily schedule of activities. Scheduled events and activities are subject to change, so please be sure to check the schedules prior to your visit.
Clouded leopards are the top predators in their range and help control populations of prey species. They are solitary hunters active largely at night. Similar to other leopards they are great climbers and can usually be found in trees that they use to hunt and as resting places. Little is known about their breeding behavior but it is thought that they can mate year-round. Red pandas are native to mountainous regions of southwestern Asia. They were once thought to be related to raccoons and giant pandas, but research has now put them in their own animal family, Ailuridae. You can visit our clouded leopards and red pandas on the Bamboo Trail.
