The Lost Kingdom

FSZ Kingdom 1Opened in December 2014 by Angela Constance MSP, the Lost Kingdom is a fantastic temperature-controlled area displaying a host of species, from small tortoises and insects to the large crocodilians and snakes.

This is a superb representation of animal groups from around the world in rainforests and other tropical environments. Entering a walkthrough area, you can experience a tropical climate, and see iguana, tortoise, birds and our leaf cutter ants at their feeding station. FSZ Kingdom 7

These ants have a trail from this walthough area, high up through the Conservation Room and into their enclosure where they build their nest and farm their own food - they don't eat the leaves, they use them to cultivate food! Look out for them!

Linked with our education booklets which cover topics related to the Curriculum for Excellence, we are proud to offer educational services to young people, and the Lost Kingdom provides a unique learning experience outside of the classroom.

FSZ Kingdom 11The Lost Kingdom is an incredible new building which followed from the devastating fire in 2013 which completely destroyed the previous tropical house. Amazingly, the crocodiles survived the fire and can now be seen proud in the Lost Kindom near to our other crocodilians, the American alligators and spectacled caiman.

A memorial garden within the zoo is in dedication to the beloved animals that were lost in 2013, but will never be forgotten.
