From yearly physicals to tiger root canals, caring for our animal collection is no easy task. Explore the complexity of non-domestic animal care with a presentation by staff veterinarians, tour the zoo's hospital and meet some non-releasable wild animals residing permanently at our zoo. Guests will also try their hand at blow-darting, a skill essential to working with animals such as lions, tigers and bears. Oh my!
From sloths to octopus, the zoo is home to many species of amazing nocturnal animals. Senior animal staff will discuss nocturnal animal adaptations as guests tour behind-the scenes at the naked mole rat and octopus exhibits. Guests will also meet some nocturnal animals up close and personal as we learn all about nighttime adaptations. Don't miss this unique opportunity to get up close and personal with your favorite nocturnal animals!
If you are enrolled and you must cancel for any reason, your registration fee is nonrefundable unless a patron on the waiting list can fill the space. In the event the cancelled slot is filled, a 25% processing fee will be deducted from your refund. If there is no waiting list for the program you are cancelling, no refund will be issued.
We often add programs based on the length of the wait list. If the program you are interested in is full, please email or call Liz at 435-8511 ext 205 with the program name and the number of tickets you require. If a space becomes avaliable or we open another program, we will contact you.
