They are not only tall, but the Aldabra turtle also has an extraordinary personality. Zoo Tampa is the habitat of three adult Aldabra turtles. Every day, the zoo calls guests to interact with the turtles and create shells at a special encounter with the Aldabra turtle.

Great One Horned Rhinoceros: There are five types of rhinos throughout the world, each of which plays a unique role in its environment and throughout the ecosystem. Here at ZooTampa, there are these two wonderful species: the southern white rhinoceros and the unicorn rhinoceros. This gentle giant, commonly known as the Indian rhinoceros, is a rare and endangered species. Unlike white southern rhinos, Indian rhinos are one of only two that have a single horn and their skin looks like armor that makes them truly unique.
