Our hippos -- 3-year-old male, Adhama, and 10-year-old female, Mara, a newcomer to the Zoo -- were recently introduced to each other for the first time, and the results were nothing short of animal magnetism. The playful pair spent much of their first day swimming together. It looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Come see them on your next visit.
Join the Safari Society
At the heart of the Zoo is the Safari Society, a group of visionary individuals who provide resources vital to making this oasis of wildlife, education, conservation, and species preservation a living gift—one that enhances the world for future generations of people, plants, and animals. Participants are part of the “inner circle” of Zoo supporters who enjoy special access, as well as programs and activities, customized to meet their interests.
Muriel's Ranch, the contact area in the Winnick Family Children's Zoo, is home to several young Nigerian dwarf goats. This sweet-tempered species only reaches around two feet, and the adults weigh in between 20 and 50 pounds. These colorful and curious babies are a kid-friendly size and a must-see for the young and "young-at-heart"!
10 a.m. – 1 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m.
