This zoo which is located at Jalan Gertak Merah also houses a few endangered species. Among the animals living in the zoo are tigers, lions, elephants, tapir, seladang, bears, chimpanzees, gorillas, crocodiles, flamingos, camels, bears and wallabies.

The Zoo Johor which was originally called 'animal garden’, was opened to the public in 1962. In 2016, the Zoo Johor was relocated from Johor Bahru to a 20.23-hectare plot of land in Iskandar Puteri. The nearest landmark to the zoo is the Abu Bakar Mosque.

Though it is a relatively small zoo, it is popular with families with young children who would visit during the weekends for recreation or just for relaxation. Entrance fees are only RM2 for adults and RM1 for children aged between 3 to 12 years old.
