Indian summer has arrived at Hellabrunn Zoo. The warm rays of the October sun and the kaleidoscope of autumn colours make a stroll through the zoo an amazing experience. Even the animals are enjoying the mild autumn weather to the fullest.
Most of the residents at Hellabrunn such as Puri the Indian rhinoceros, Gajendra the elephant and the red ruffed lemur are taking advantage of the last warm rays by relaxing in the sunshine in their enclosure.
The Munich Zoo Hellabrunn was founded in 1911 as the first Geo-zoo worldwide. The animals live according to their geographic distribution in complex communities.
Hellabrunn’s Species Conservation Center is a unique forum where zoo visitors can access an amazing amount of information about the zoo’s many projects.
