Meet an owl up close, see what a snake feels like, or see a bobcat jump! Animal Encounters take place Monday-Saturday at the top of each hour between 10 am and 3 pm., but what animal you meet varies daily. Each Animal Encounter features one of our Ambassador Animals, often performing a natural behavior like flying, eating, or jumping, or may give you a special opportunity to touch one of our reptiles. We are open Monday through Saturday, from 9 am until 4 pm. A modest entry fee gets you in for as long as you'd like to stay, and enables you to see Animal Encounters as well.
