Colorado Springs Zoo - Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Colorado

In 1938, after substantial development, Mr. Penrose incorporated Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado as a non-profit public trust for the people of Colorado Springs.

Today, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado, America’s ONLY mountain zoo, offers a new experience every time and transforms visitors from passive viewers to active participants. Through comprehensive education programs, exciting conservation efforts, and truly fantastic animal experiences, this Colorado Springs Zoo is able to touch the lives of our guests more than ever before. The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo in Colorado is home to the largest giraffe herd of any zoo.  Get up close and personal as you feed the giraffes in the African Rift Valley exhibit.  Did you know that a zoo is a great location for a modern art exhibit? The not-to-be-missed Scutes Family Gallery is home to 40 species of reptiles that live in beautiful, unique exhibits.

It is the Zoo’s hope to help visitors fall in love with animals and nature, and take action to protect them. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Colorado is home to more than 800+ animals, representing over 200 species, more than 30 of which are endangered. This Colorado Springs Zoo welcomes more than 575,000 visitors every year! It was recently voted the #5 zoo in the U.S. by TripAdvisor users!
