Can I Bring My Children?

Be prepared to hold small children most of the time you’re here. Being eye to eye with some of our animals can be intimidating to little ones. Children must have adult supervision at all times, and may not be “dropped off” to visit on their own.

What to Bring and Not to Bring

Cameras are fine, but know that anything hanging low enough for an animal to reach will probably get gently chewed on. It is best to stow purses and bags in your car, leaving your hands free for petting. Strollers are not allowed on property, and unfortunately the grounds are not wheelchair accessible.

Treats: If you plan to bring treats for the animals, please discuss this with us when you call so we may advise you what to bring.

Glassware and avacados are not allowed.
