Did You Know?

Amphitheater Programs

Daily programs are held at the amphitheater where visitors learn about various mammals, birds, primates, and reptiles. We firmly believe that a little knowledge can go a long way in cultivating respect and love for animals. That's why we work hard to provide a variety of educational programs and learning experiences at the zoo!

“In the end… we will conserve only what we love, we will love only what we understand, we will understand only what we are taught.”

Primate & Reptile Center

Featuring North American, Desert & Rainforest Exhibits What shape is a snake? And what about a turtle? Some reptiles are round while others are long and skinny; some can coil up into a ball, while others can tuck their heads into their shells. Reptiles come in all shapes and sizes. Learn about these creepy, crawly critters while visiting our reptiles, amphibians, and arthropods.

Also check out the primates and come nose to nose to a lemur and hear them vocalize while the sloth’s siesta all day long.
