Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear Exhibit Opening

Nashville Zoo will officially open its newest exhibit, Expedition Peru: Trek of the Andean Bear, with a ribbon cutting celebration. The event will include a variety of animals and announcements from Nashville’s Mayor and Zoo officials.

The addition of the Andean Bear exhibit will mark the first time this species has ever been housed at Nashville Zoo at Grassmere in its entire 21-year history. The covered viewing building will feature materials from around the world including Peruvian textiles and decorative wood and tile work.

The Peruvian village not only includes Andean bears, but is also the home of pudu (the world’s smallest deer), guinea pigs and fresh water stingrays. Exclusively for the Zoo’s female guests, there is a floor-to-ceiling exhibit of cotton-top tamarins in the women’s restroom.
