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.
