Welcome to the Toledo Zoo Fact Page Collection

Although we do not have fact pages for every single animal living at The Toledo Zoo, we hope you will enjoy the following collection. The information in our fact pages was collected and verified by our very own zoo keepers and curators. Each fact page offers the animal's information, a photo, 30-secondweb video (requires Flash) and links where you can download your own copies of the videos as Quicktimes or AVI if you want to use them for projects or add them to your own collection. Most of our videos do not have sound, but if you see 'includes audio' under the name of the animal then that video does include sound.

Please select the animal category you want to view, or scroll down to see all options:
