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.
