NOTICE! The time of an Animal Encounter may need to be adjusted or delayed when an animal has become overstimulated or needs rest or playtime. If you schedule an encounter, please be patient. Animals do not understand human schedules. We always put the well-being of our animals first. Due to an animals's age or its temperament at the time of an encounter, we cannot guarantee that on any encounter you will be able to hold the animal. With patience, we will give you the best encounter possible and assure the well being of our animals. At times an animal might not be available and a substitute will have to be made.

PHOTOGRAPHY. Please note that the taking of photos or recording of videos is not permitted on our tours or during encounters due to time constraints and distraction issues for the Animals. In the past, some guests with camera or recording devices have not followed directions, resulting in interference and delays as well as the distraction causes un-due stress on the animal. To provide a better experience for our guests and the animals, a zoo employee will be present to take photos of any hands-on animal encounters. These photos can only be purchased through our website before date of tours or at the gift shop following your zoo adventure. Photos are included free of charge when booking an All-Access Family Pass, Private Animal Encounter, Tiger Swim or Gator Swim.
