Where are we going today?

Formerly Pocatello Zoo, Zoo Idaho is where kids and families can surround themselves with some of the most amazing animals found across North America, and being inspired by living symbols of the American West!

Zoo Idaho is not only where kids can experience amazing wildlife encounters, but it's where they can have a unique opportunity to learn about these amazing native species through exhibits, classes, storytelling, and other fun family programs.

Kids - how many North American species could you name? How about the pronghorn, or the grizzly bear? What about the cougar, or the bison? Let's not forget about those eagles!

There are beautiful deer, as well as wild dogs and cats, and even small mammals and reptiles too.

Not all of the animals at Zoo Idaho are exotic, and the barnyard is always popular with the little ones, where they can make friends with the donkeys, chickens, goats, and more!

There are over 30 exhibits across 25 acres, which include over 140 animals, all waiting to make your next family day out a WILD one to remember!

What started in 1932 has turned into a stunning way for kids to learn about the beauty of wildlife, and see the faces behind why we need to look after our animals and planet - an invaluable lesson!

So, are you ready for that animal-tastic day out, where you don't have to travel around North America to see what makes it great. At Zoo Idaho - the animals have come to you!
