The Asia Region starts by the wolves and is a paved path through a cottonwood forest. The path splits at one point and one half becomes a nature trail. The other path splits again, one going towards the Siberian tiger, and the other going to the sika deer and red panda.The North America Region includes habitats for wolf, grizzly bear, river otter, beaver, bald eagle, and bighorn sheep, as well as ponds for waterfowl including swan geese, emperor geese, Arctic geese, and domestic geese.

  • Absolutely love Zoo Montana! We go as often as we can, we took the Grandkids and they had a great time! It just happened to be Family Fun Day which was even better. What a great day!
  • Nice place to spend the day with the family. The girls loved it! It was a nice little walk and affordable! We will be going back for sure.😀
  • Love the zoo here in Billings! Jeff (the nature guy) is doing a great job at making improvements to the infrastructure of the zoo as well as to the display and wellbeing of the animals. It's great being able to come hete multiple times a year and get some great pictures of the numerous wildlife at the zoo.
  • Big fan of anything for the kids and was not disappointed. Locals should definitely support this place more. More support equals better zoo
  • A great little zoo with lots of potential. New and refreshed exhibits are making ZooMontana better all the time. Tigers are cool!
