The Saint Louis Zoo has one of the finest collections of hoofed mammals in the nation. The Antelope House and Antelope Yards are home to most of our hoofed mammals. During the 1930s, the Antelope House was designed to faithfully reproduce huge geological formations found in Graniteville, Missouri. Large moated yards radiate from the house, which is open year round for a variety of hoofed mammals. A quiet, shady part of the Zoo, with simulated red granite boulders to mark the trail, the Antelope area is a great way to enjoy a day at the Zoo.
North Yards: lesser kudu, Somali wild ass, oryx and bongo
South Yards: Grevy's zebra, camel, addax and okapi
East Yards: giraffe, Speke's gazelle, babirusa and kangaroo
West Yards: gorals, Transcaspian urials and takins
Plus, look for these large birds in mixed-species exhibits in the Antelope area: ostrich, saddlebill stork, East African crowned crane, sarus crane, marabou stork, wattled crane and helmeted guineafowl.
