In addition, the zoo accommodates a small animal, which is almost impossible to be found in the wild, since at one time its population was virtually destroyed. The Madagascar lemur, also known as the aye-aye, is one of the nocturnal species of lemurs. Many visitors seek to see it at night in Tsimbazaza zoo.
The most visited place in the zoo is the museum. Here, you can find a collection of fossils and skeletons of prehistoric animals and birds that used to inhabit the territory of Madagascar, such as the giant lemurs and the amazing three-meter elephant bird.
Also, here you can see the elephant birds’ egg shells, the size of a basketball ball.
The entrance fee is about $3 (9600 ariary) for a non resident or 0,50 cents (1600 ariary) for residents.
