Loro Parque now houses the biggest collection of parrots in the world. There is plenty more to enjoy here these days with a diverse assortment of animals. The main animal categories are mammals, fishes, reptiles and of course, the birds. There are also many super exhibitions and shows on offer when you visit. Loro Parque has now welcomed over 40 million visitors since opening.
Below we go into more detail about the various animals you can visit here. We will also touch on some of the top exhibitions and shows on offer.
As we have already touched on, the parrots are the main attraction and stars of the show here. This park would not exist were it not for the 4000 clever birds that live here. Seeing the diverse collection of parrots is a good enough reason to come here alone.
Also in the bird category we have cranes, flamingos and the adorable penguins. The four species of penguins are Gentoo, King, Rockhopper and Chinstaps.
Meeting The Penguins
You first pass through a tunnel of ice to enter the penguin enclosure. This area is an indoor replica of the penguins Antarctic habitat. The light and temperature must remain at a suitable level for the penguins to survive. You can watch the penguins enjoy a swim in their pools or waddle on land. This amazing enclosure even provides the penguins with artificial snow.
Both the flamingos and the cranes have outdoor garden areas as you may expect. The flamingos have been part of the park for longer than most animals. Their numbers continue to increase year after year.
