With 1,840 animals representing 265 species--including the largest population of giant otters in the world--Dortmund Zoo offers 28 hectares (69 acres) for the creatures to roam. Although the animals in this green parkland are from all around the world, the zoo focuses on preserving South American species, including the giant anteater, tamanduas, and South American giant otter. Main areas of interest include the Amazon Building, which copies the natural diversification of the Amazon's tropical forests, and the Otter House.
