The zoo, which overlooks the city and Lake Zurich, is home to more than 250 different wild species and contains a tropical rainforest mimicking the conditions of Madagascar's threatened Masaola Peninsula, with humid temperatures and sprinklers squirting 80,000 litres of water daily over exotic plants and trees.
