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. 



In September, visit us for an exciting educational journey highlighting species native to Africa. The Warthog will be featured on the Stone Stage at 2 & 4 pm. This is a great opportunity to see some training and to learn what makes these animals so special!



South America month is back! Our most popular month features the chance to touch Poco, one of our Linneus’ two toed sloths! Come learn why sloths hang “upside down”, and meet some of the sloth’s lesser-known but equally fascinating South American neighbors!



November is our chance to highlight some of our native Michigan species! Featuring Stone Stage presentations of our cougar, Harper, at 2 pm and our skunk, Alfie, at 4 pm, this month is a fun chance to get to know more about the animals right in your own back yard!

While we do our best to adhere 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 unforeseen circumstances. Please be aware that we cannot guarantee animal appearances, touching, or feeding opportunities.
