The last time I visited the zoo was last year․ We saw many interesting animals there. There are animals we didn’t know about. There, my brother and I fed the animals that could be fed.
Currently, there are about 2,049 species of animals and 2,749 individual animals in the zoo. Species representing the South Caucasus and Armenia include Syrian bears, Bezoar goats, Armenian mouflon, and others. Among the animals brought from other places are African lions, tigers (Bengal and Siberian subspecies), etc.
In 1954, the park had 4 sections: ungulates, carnivores, birds and reptiles. In 1980, Yerevan Zoo already had 350 species of animals, but in the early 1990s, it decreased by 90%.
