The gelada bridge has great viewing of our gelada baboons.

Geladas are mostly grass-eaters, and they are the last surviving species of ancient grazing primates. Geladas spend most of their day sitting down, plucking and munching on grasses and herbs.

You can also spot our flock of Chilean flamingos from the bridge and our playful lemurs in their walkthrough enclosure, Lost Madagascar, from above.
