Stretching out over 20 hectares in the Casa de Campo, this zoo is one of the biggest and oldest in Europe. It's home to over 500 different species of animals; there are big names (and animals) such as pandas, wolves, giraffes and white tigers, as well as lizards and many smaller mammals.
The 3,000 m2 Aviario (aviary) has more than 60 types of birds, including bald eagles, vultures, and condors. Catch a 'Birds of Prey' show to see them perform flight exercises like they're nature's stunt pilots.
If underwater adventure is more your style, The aquarium has one of the most impressive collections of coral in Europe. And if coral doesn't float your boat, there are plenty of colorful fish, single-minded sharks, and regular dolphin and sea lion shows guaranteed to make a splash.
With a broad array of furry, feathered, and scaly creatures, Zoo Aquarium Madrid is animal-tastic family-friendly good times.
