The Lee Richardson Zoo is now offering public giraffe feedings on Saturdays & Sundays throughout the summer. From 1:30 pm to 2:30 pm, weather permitting and giraffes willing, guests will be able to purchase “keeper approved” food and experience a close encounter with the tallest land animal on the planet. Our trained volunteers will bring you to a designated safe area where you can get up close and personal with Juani or Cleo, and witness all of the wonderful adaptations that these gentle giants have developed for feeding. You’ll be hooked as they tower above you and reach out to wrap their 18” long, prehensile tongue around the treat in your hand.
In addition to having a unique fun family experience, you are supporting the care of all of animals at Lee Richardson Zoo as all proceeds help maintain our zoo as a world class accredited facility that is still free to walk through.
