  2. The section of wild animals displays lions, groups of bears, wolves, foxes, as well as some other representatives of the cat and canine families.    
  3. The hoofed and tylopods are represented by equidae, cavicorn and camel families.
  4. The exotarrium demostrates various insects, spiders, snakes, lizards, turtles and rats.  
  5. The section for birds includes various species of domestic and wild birds.  

A wide range of research and  educational work, various ecological programs are carried out in the zoo. At the weekend visitors can see an open show with wild birds and trained animals.
