Or catch our nocturnal animals before they turn in for the day. Say hello to the Zoo Keepers getting ready for the day, or catch some of your favorite animals getting a bit of breakfast before the regular guests arrive.  The Zoo in the morning sure is a different place!

When the night starts to cool down, many of our animal friends get up for a quick stretch before bed, while others search for the perfect spot to snuggle down for the night. Without the crowds of the hot summer days, you can see the zoo personally like never before! For our members,  Zoo gates with close at 8 p.m. and grounds will close at 9 p.m.
