Jerusalem Biblical Zoo

The Tisch Family Zoological Gardens in Jerusalem (Hebrew: גן החיות התנ"כי בירושלים על שם משפחת טיש), also called the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo, is a public zoo in Jerusalem, Israel. It has all the animals that are in the Jewish Bible and the Talmud books. The zoo was established in Jerusalem in 1940. It moved many times until it moved to a permanent location near the Givat Masua neighborhood in 1993. A new aquarium dedicated to the fishes of the Land of Israel is planned for the near future.

The perfect Zoo for kids!! Tons of different animals including leopard lions bears and zebras. Also cute train ride around the zoo with different stops. And a park with slides and fun sculpture garden

In the heart of the zoo lies a man-made lake which is fed with pools and waterfalls and which is also home to two islands where the monkey exhibits are housed.

Open areas, which separate the visiting public through trenches and bridges, give the zoo a more natural feel and allow the animals to roam more freely.
