Daily Programs


Pachyderm Program

Nature’s largest land animals  are fascinating creatures.  They can take a bow, return a keeper’s hat, stand perfectly still to have their toenails trimmed and much more.  Watch as the Elephant Encounter staff shows off their "girls" including young Zuri, during these daily programs.  Be sure to ask questions.  Located in the training yard at Elephant Encounter.  Free with paid admission.  Space is limited to arrive early.

When: Look for us in the spring of 2012
