Featured animals

The following animals will be featured over the next 3 months. Each animal will be presented at 2:00 and 4:00 on our Stone Stage area during our weekend open hours. 



February is an exciting time to catch Lady Gaga and Bedhead, our Crested Porcupines, going through some of their training behaviors on the Stone Stage. These intelligent rodents have a really effective way in which they defend themselves from various predators. Come out to learn all about them and various African species!



Australia Month is on the way! Tulip, our Red Kangaroo, will be leading the Stone Stage programs. Some of our critters from down under will be making an appearance so that you can learn about how and why some animals have adapted to deal with the heat of the outback and have developed interesting defense mechanisms!



During the month of April, we will be having an exciting educational journey highlighting species native to South America. The Two-Toed Sloth will make an appearance at 2 pm and the Cougar will be featured on the Stone Stage at 4 pm. Come out to learn about some really cool critters that live in the rainforests and grasslands.

While we do our best to stick to the schedule of featured animals and daily presentations, safety is always our priority for both our animals and our visitors. There may be days when last minute changes and accommodations have to be made due to unforseen circumstances. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee animal appearances, touching, or feeding opportunities.
