Kukulkan's zoo was a collection of creatures kept aboard Kukulkan's starship by Kukulkan. Kukulkan's machinery created a virtual world for each creature so they could live peacefully in their native environment. (TAS: "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth")

Although some of the creatures look like plants, the idea of creating a virtual habitat for a lifeform that doesn't have any cognitive capabilities seems absurd. Also, several of the creatures were in different cages in different shots; this is either an animation error or perhaps there were multiple specimens for each species.
In the audio commentary for "How Sharper Than a Serpent's Tooth", David Wise mentions that the zoo was to be filled with various animals that had been seen in earlier TOS episodes, including the Horta and a couple tribbles.
