Celebrate the holidays in the wildest way imaginable here at Animal World & Snake Farm Zoo! After you’re finished opening presents, come watch our animals open theirs. Join us on December 29th and 30th, 2018 from 10am – 6pm for our first annual Christmas with the Critters event!
Be sure to check out our special Holiday Show schedule at the bottom of the page and plan your visit around the exciting, educational, and interactive shows! Throughout the day we’ll be Croc’n Around the Christmas Tree with Old Greg the Morelet’s Crocodile, singing “Fa La La La Lemur” with Tilly the Brown Lemur, having a Christmas Like no Otter, and more!
Have you ever seen a mountain lion play with a Christmas Tree? Or a Red Ruffed Lemur sip on a Monkey Mocha? How about a Jaguar opening wrapped gifts? Now’s your chance! While you’ve been out shopping for loved ones on your list, our zookeepers have been busy planning gifts for our critters! Join us as they investigate these fun new treats and toys.
Warm Yummy Treats
Our animals aren’t the only ones getting special treats during our holiday event. Hot chocolate, warm apple cider, and s’mores will be available to zoo guests as well! Warm up with a hot beverage, or stand next to a fire pit while roasting marshmallows for s’mores. Gluten-free s’mores kits will be available upon request.
