Animals live in small cages which is a bit sad. To be fair, the zoo lacks money for maintenance. . Good selection of Arctic birds and aminals. Its 50 km from Yakutsk but buses run regularly from the bus station

It's a small zoo, the most northern in the world with quite some local animals, including polar bears (they had a cub the time we were there). Some albinos where there as well (Peacock, crow). Wolves, bear, foxes, elks, reindeers, Yaks and other animals.

I saw lot of birds and animals that can survive in the cold. Some of these animals are the Brown bear, Reindeer, Polar bear, Grey wolf, Golden eagle etc. Yakutsk Zoo Orto Doidu is a zoo that you must visit.

There was a huge range of animals and birds with of course a great offering of those found within Yakutia and Siberia. Some of the sizes of the cages relative to the sizes of the animals could be questioned and would appear not a lot...More
