Kids, are you excited to come face to face with over 660 native and exotic animals in just ONE family day out?
Oakland Zoo is where you can spend the day, exploring and learning all about creatures from not only close to home, but all over the world too!
There are mammals, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and even arthropods. Don’t know what they are, kids? Well, there is only one way to find out – head on over to Oakland Zoo!
Let’s explore the mammals first! Kids can learn why elephants love to roll in dust and mud, and what exactly is a Chincilla? You can watch those playful chimps play, or see those grand lions in their stride. From Pygmy goats, to Sun Bears, to even those Warthogs!
Those cute amphibians are next, and you might be surprised to hear some of them are actually poisonous! But don’t worry – you’ll be fine! From the Blue Poison Dart Frog, to the Colorado River Toad, to the Lemur Tree Frog, Oakland Zoo will surprise you with just how many different creatures we are lucky to have on our planet.
If you have kids who just love those creepy crawlies, with slithering snakes, cheeky geckos and even those snappy alligators, then they are in luck too! The Reptile section is perfect to really get an up close look at some of these weird and wonderful creatures!
Want to know the best thing about visiting Oakland Zoo? A visit to the zoo means you will be supporting wildlife all across the globe too, so it’s a day out not just for the kids, but for the animals too!
So let’s go! The animals are waiting!
