Bioparc de Doué-la-Fontaine
This zoo, in a superb troglodyte site, offers an exceptional home to a thousand animals living in semi-liberty. Waterfalls, acacia and bamboo aim to provide a natural backdrop for the species that live here, most of which are endangered, and you may be lucky enough to see one of the zoo's new-borns. The huge aviary devoted to South American birds is particularly impressive. Giraffes, rhinoceros, tigers and red pandas live next to leopards, okapis, penguins and vultures!
