This will involve food preparation, as well as following our daily husbandry guidelines for each species.

This experience is available for adults and children over the age of 11 years old; however children between the ages of 11 and 16 years must be accompanied by a spectating parent or guardian paying normal zoo admission (1 adult per 1 child).
