Here at Family Days Out we love a zoo! We love seeing all the animals playing with each other, and even trying to spot strange and wonderful species we didn’t even know existed (and there are a lot out there!)
Emporia Zoo have reptiles, mammals, amphibians and birds all for you to enjoy, and learn from. Here’s a question – do you know what the difference between a reptile and a mammal is? If you don’t, better get down to the zoo to find out!
Say hello to the American Badger, or perhaps you want to see how the Long-Taile Chinchilla plays with it’s friends? Watch the Bobcat as it moves around it’s enclosure, or have a good look at the Souther Three-Banded Armadillo – what strange features do you notice about it?
Have you ever been out walking and seen something soar above you and not quite know what it is? They have a host of birds here to look at, you can really get to know them individually and learn what makes the unique – from the iconic Bald Eagle, to the Emu, King Vulture, Short-Eared Owl and the Egret.
It’s a great place to learn all about the animals, their habitats and their nature.
They often hold special events too, so keep an eye out for those – some you might not want to miss! In addition, they can also cater for school groups, including a fun week long experience!
