In Kanazawa Zoo, herbivores are grouped by four continents of Africa, Oceania, Eurasia and America. Some of them are on the endangered species list.

The zoo is located on the hill in the city of Yokohama, so variety of trees grows in the zoo. The Sawtooth Oak and Konara Quercus serrata Murray attract the Rhinoceros Beetle and the Stag Beetle. A lot of children come to the zoo with their butterfly net. It is so funny to watch the kids staring at the forest with their net instead of zoo animals….
