The Raptor Cage

The Zoo León (formally León Zoological Park, or Parque Zoológico de León in Spanish) is a zoo located in León, Guanajuato, Mexico. The zoo is open 365 days a year.

The zoo is home to more than 1100 animals of 180 species. Seven of these species cannot be found in other Mexican zoos: warthogs, Amur leopards, flying foxes, mongoose lemurs, Kamchatka bears, sloth bears and raccoon dogs.

The Raptor Cage is claimed to be the largest in the world, and houses golden eagle, bald eagle, red-tailed hawk, Harris hawk, caracara, vultures, and owls.

Visitors can ride a miniature train around the zoo and past its main attractions such as The Uncle Buffalo Cabin.
