Shangfang Shan Forest Animal World Zoo replaces the old Suzhou Zoo which closed in May 2016. All the animals in the old Suzhou Zoo have been moved to the Shangfang Shan Forest Animal World Zoo, with the exception of animals considered too fragile to move, such as the endangered pair of Yangtze giant softshell turtles (Rafetus swinhoei); two of the only three remaining on earth. The Zoo covers an area of 67 hectares with more than 1000 animals and 100 species including white tigers, pumas, Asian elephants, black bears, hornbills, toucans and more.
