  • Veterinary Treatment Room
    This healing facility—viewable through an expansive glass window—offers a unique look into the “hands-on” care of the park’s animals.

  • Backstage Tour
    Spy many of the park’s most popular creatures in their backstage habitats using “animal cams” that you control.

  • Eco-Web

    Glimpse tarantulas, scorpions, millipedes and snakes at this creepy-crawly spot.

  • Wildlife Tracking Center
    Take a look inside the lives of our actual working scientists as they study and learn about wildlife all around the world.

And, as can be expected, helpful experts are on hand to answer your questions and educate you and your family on the protection of animals.
