C-level, Learning Lab “F”

With our international colony of teaching animals—from chinchillas to box turtles—you can learn about animal behavior and habitats. Our knowledgeable staff will introduce you to our wonderful creatures and share fun stories and interesting facts about them.

The Animal Discovery Zone has limited hours while we make plans to revitalize this beloved space. Our transformation will provide updated habitats for our animals, an expanded animal care facility, new activities, and more opportunities to connect. For the health and safety of our staff, our visitors, and our animals, capacity is limited.
