Explore the natural rainforest environment as you walk through America’s largest indoor rainforest, the Lied Jungle. Inside this exhibit you will hear waterfalls crashing, see gibbons swinging and feel the tropical environment surround you.
Monkeys, tapirs, macaws and pygmy hippos are just a few of the animals you will see in the Lied Jungle. This exhibit showcases rainforests from South America, Asia and Africa.

The roof of the Lied Jungle is being replaced with a new product to
allow more UV light to enter. Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo
and Aquarium's Horticulture Team has played a major role in the
transformation of the roof. The roof material has been selected largely
because of the benefits to plants inside of the exhibit. This material
will allow high-light transmission for optimum plant growth. The project
is expected to be completed by December 2016.
