Sacramento Zoo Amphibians & Fish

Amphibians
Almost all amphibians have thin, moist skin that helps them breathe. No other group of animals has this special skin. Most amphibians undergo a unique change from larvae to adults, called metamorphosis.

Fish
There are some things that all fish have in common:

  • They breathe with gills.
  • All fish have fins, which help them swim forward, turn, and stop, as well as keep upright.
  • Most fish also have scales and most hatch from eggs.

Due to exhibit maintenance, weather conditions and animal care requirements, some of the animals may not be viewable. If you are interested in a particular species, please call 916-808-5888 or email the Member & Visitor Services Office to find out if you will be able to see those animals during your visit.
