It's all happening at your Zoo.

Animal Mingle

Come join us at Manatee Fountain for your chance to experience an up-close encounter with one of the animals from our outreach department. You might find yourself looking a hawk straight in the eye, or listening to the hiss of a snake! You’ll get to learn a little bit about your new animal friend, and ask the presenter your questions.
