Please be advised that on April 25 at Franklin Park Zoo and April 26 at Stone Zoo, we will be conducting a routine animal escape drill. These drills are an important part of our preparedness training. While the drill is occurring, guests will be asked to move to certain areas within the Zoo for a brief period of time (not to exceed 10 minutes). We will do our best to have minimal impact on the guest experience. We are very dedicated to safety and we appreciate your participation. If you have any questions about what to expect, please do not hesitate to contact us at 617-989-2000 or info@zoonewengland.com.

Snow Leopards

Himalayan Highlands

Meaning "abode of snow" in Sanskrit, the Himalaya mountains are home to an array of animals with special adaptations to deal with the wintry climate. At Stone Zoo's Himalayan Highlands, snow leopards, equipped with long tails for keeping balanced in high drifts of snow, live alongside their natural prey, Markhor goats. Rounding out these hearty species is a yak, used in the Himalayas as beasts of burden that transport goods across mountain passes for farmers and traders and in support of climbing and trekking expeditions.
