The Zoological Garden in Bucharest emerged in 1955 as "zoological corners" located in the main parks of the capital and Băneasa forest. Between 1955 and 1959 the animal stock gradually concentrated in Băneasa Zoological Corner, that opened on the 1st of May 1959 and became, in 1962, Bucharest Zoological Garden. It spans 5.85 hectares and its collections hold over 100 forms (species and subspecies) with a total number of over 800 specimens belonging to three classes of vertebrate animals: reptiles, birds and mammals.
