At Exmoor Zoo change keeps taking place, so even a visit last year, will today see new exhibits and animals! The zoo has always specialised in smaller animals in the past, providing natural living spaces for many creatures no longer seen in the city zoos.

Today, new exhibits exist for larger animals such as Puma, reindeer, maned wolves, meerkats, Cheetah to name but a few and of course the Exmoor beast! . Sand Cats, Binturong, singing dogs, wolves, Carpathian lynx, are all recent new arrivals. The careful planting of shrubs and trees as they have matured, will keep you wondering what is next, providing a very relaxing and natural atmosphere!

Exmoor zoo is different from other zoos. It is not a wildlife park or a city zoo, but a more personal, friendly and contact orientated zoo which has grown into a North Devon Valley. This is reflected by the talks and encounter sessions (every half hour in the summer); a visit will undoubtedly show you there is a lot more here, than first meets the eye!
