With over 300 animals, you might need to be leaving a few hours to check them all out! From birds, reptiles, mammals, and amphibians, the park has an incredible variety. There are also animals you can directly interact with. From the white Bengal Tigers to the black-footed penguin - the zoo has some of the most interactive and endangered animals in the state.

It's also a great way for kids to learn about endangered animals, and why it's so important for us to all come together and protect them. Once they're gone we can't get them back! 

Some of the other animals you can interact with are the alpaca, the dromedary camel (quick quiz - how many humps!?), the red kangaroo, Indian rhinos, and even an African Spur-Thighed Tortoise!

And as you're a family - don't miss out on Wild Wednesdays! It's a great way for the family to enjoy an evening together, with FREE admission for the kids! There is live music, and special meals all between 6pm - 8pm. How cool is that!
