Ever have a lemur sit on your head or cuddle with a kangaroo?
How about pet an anteater or hang out with a sloth?

Our up-close and intimate Animal Encounters are unique educational opportunities to learn about some of our most gentle and fascinating animals in a safe, supervised environment. Appropriate for all ages, it’s a fun, foto-fantastic must-do at the zoo!
