At the only Zoo in Ticino you can see over 200 animals of about 45 different species, mostly of which you can interact with by feeding them with specific food, that can be bought at the entrance. There you can also find the feeding times for lions, snowleopards and raccoons, which are worth watching. The zoo is not too big and ideal for families with children, there are two playgrounds for the kids and picnic areas with barbecue. Since it is in a small valley, the temperature is always a few degrees lower than in the city and it is usually protected from heavy rain and wind. Take a break under palm trees in this little jungle and listen to the sounds of parrots, gibbons, lions, snow leopards, goats, geese, ducks and watch many other animals.
