Animals

The Attica Zoological Park opened in May 2000, initially as a Bird Park, hosting the 3rd largest bird collection in the world (1100 birds from 300 different species), farm animals for the younger visitors and three very impressive walk-in aviaries with birds from the three continents of Asia, Africa and America. Later and during the years Pythons, Boas, Crocodiles and other reptiles were added and in July 2002 the “Greek Fauna” section was inaugurated with Wolves, Brown Bears, Foxes, Wild Cats, Lynxes etc. In February 2003 a major extension was added, the “African Savannah” (Giraffes, Zebra, Antelopes etc) as well as Lamas, Jaguars, Snow Leopards, the very rare White Lions and other beautiful mammals.At the end of June 2003, another extension was added to the Park, where the visitors have the opportunity to observe the closest relative to man, the Monkeys and Apes. In December 2004 the section with the wild cats was extended with Tigers, Servals and Ocelots, a big area was added to the African Savannah and a new extension opened with Pygmy Hippos, Prairie dogs, African wild dogs and Alligators. In the beginning of 2005, the “Monkey Forest” opened to the public, where visitors are able to be in the same enclosure with the monkeys.
