Asia Trail, a series of exhibits that opened in 2006, is home to seven Asian species: sloth bears, fishing cats, red pandas, clouded leopards, Asian small-clawed otters, a Japanese giant salamander, and giant pandas.
See a map of Asia Trail, read about the animal habitats, and learn about Asia Trail's green elements.

Watching fishing cats: Two fishing cats live on Asia Trail. These short-tailed cats are about twice the size of the average housecat. They attract fish by lighting tapping the water's surface with a paw, mimicking insect movements. Then, they dive into the water to catch the fish.
