Visit the Nashville Zoo's newest exhibit! From the moment guests step into this new feature, they will be enveloped in an authentic, indigenous village featuring a Peruvian lodge, courtyard with seating areas, lush vegetation and beautiful wood, stone and metalwork. Visitors will get an unobstructed view of the bears from several observation points, including one underwater. The Peruvian lodge contains interactive educational displays where guests can learn about a variety of South American animals and also boasts spectacular views of these bears no matter where they are in the exhibit. The Peruivian village not only includes Andean bears, but is also the home of pudu (the world’s smallest deer), guinea pigs and fresh water stingrays.
