Pachyderm House

The Pachyderm House is home to pygmy hippos, tapirs and rhinos. Watch a pygmy hippo nap in its mud wall or the tapir taking a swim. Check out the rhino as they beat the heat with a roll around in the dust to protect their sensitive skin and keep the bugs from biting. Whether indoor or outdoor, learn about the preservation of these endangered animals.
