Visit Elephants of Asia
Don't miss visiting our Asian elephants, Billy, Jewel, and Tina on your next visit to the Zoo! The state-of-the-art habitat tells the story of Asian elephants in four homeland countries - India, Thailand, China, and Cambodia.
The habitat has many features dedicated to the health and welfare of the elephants including bathing pools and showers, varied topography, enrichment opportunities, and a 16,600 square foot barn.
Visiting their home in the heart of the Zoo is an excellent way to experience these magnificent animals!
This July, the Zoo will welcome a new kind of wild life with its Roaring Nights nighttime series. Enjoy live animal encounters and zookeeper talks throughout each evening, live music, stand-up comedians, food truck favorites, and a full bar service.
These events are for visitors 18 years and older. Tickets will be available at the gate each event night.
July 11, 18, and 25 (7 - 10pm)
Giraffe Calf Born
On April 22, the Zoo’s animal community soared to new heights with the birth of a female giraffe calf named SOFIE.
The calf, weighing in at 135 pounds and standing six feet tall, was named by donor Robert McMillan after his great granddaughter.
This is the first baby for the Zoo’s female Masai giraffe, Hasina, fathered by Artimus.
