Zoo Zurich is home to over 300 species of animals from all corners of the globe. Many of the enclosures are set up to reflect the ecosystems their inhabitants would find in the wild. One of the main attractions is the special simulated rain forest area called "Masaola Rainforest". There is also a petting zoo section called "Zoolino". Highlights change on a weekly schedule with all details featured on the zoo's multilingual webpage. At time of writing, Saturday highlights included elephant washing and a penguin parade. Summer opening hours (March to October) are 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM daily including holidays; winter opening hours (November to February) are 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily including holidays.
