No, not all of the animals are mentioned in the Bible, but they are well tended, in nice surroundings. The "safari" section was especially nice. They are opening an aquarium soon.

i always thought a zoo was a zoo. But the Jerusalem zoo is in relatively new quarters and is superbly well laid out. It is expensive (including the need for a taxi as it is not near most hotels) Our grandchildren loved it.
