Starting January 1, 2015, the Zoo will be shifting to the winter schedule. This change will apply to the months of January and February, when the Zoo will be open Fridays through Mondays, 10 a.m to 4 p.m. Special winter admission prices will be available in January and February, too! All tickets — adult, child and senior — will cost just $10 at the front gate.
Visitors should also be aware that during the winter season, the Zoo will not be operating with its full collection of animals. Some have already been moved in for the cold weather season, while others will be in and out depending on what the weather does — the rhinos and zebras for example.
The Zoo’s limited collection of winter animal displays includes all primates housed indoors at the Chimpanzee Forest along with the Panamanian golden frogs, lemurs and crocodiles. Penguins, flamingos and the Zoo’s Arctic animals — polar bears, arctic fox, raven and bald eagle — will still be on exhibit as well. You can also expect to see reptiles and mammals in the cave and tree exhibits near the marsh aviary. The giraffes will also be on exhibit daily in the winter, either indoors or outdoors depending on temperatures. Finally, lions may be out and about, once again, depending on what the weather does.
