Our Exhibits

Description

Education and entertainment are key to every show in the Gardens. Presentations by our knowledgeable animal keepers are designed to thrill and amaze, while educating spectators on animals in general, as well as exotic pet ownership. Shows are intended for audiences of all ages and often include audience participation. Each show runs approximately 20 minutes with many of our animals performing.

You are guaranteed to have fun while learning something new. Curators will be happy to answer questions at the end of the show and will often allow guests an opportunity to see the animals up close.

All shows are included in the price of admission but fill up quickly, so please arrive about 15 minutes early to guarantee seating in our outdoor pavilion or bleachers. Donations are accepted and go toward the care of the animals and their habitats.
