You can enter the ring-tailed lemur habitat with a guide and hand feed grapes to a troop of playful prosimians. Ring-tailed lemurs are very polite. They will line up to gently touch your hand with theirs, carefully removing a grape from your fingers. They tilt their heads back, so as not to lose one drop of grape juice!
Our cheetah encounter is for people who really love cheetahs. Our professional cheetah keepers will take you along in their daily animal care routine and you will see the animals up close. You will be helping us feed the cats and will the assume the role of an assistant zookeeper.
