This question can be answered both affirmatively and negatively. You can see animals, but it is not considered a classical zoo.

There is no full-fledged zoo with a large territory where you can walk for hours in Northern Cyprus. But there are several mini-zoos, as well as places where you can see some animals in their natural habitat.
