Make your next visit to the Montgomery Zoo a grand wildlife adventure. Make a true connection with some of the animals here at the Montgomery Zoo by enjoying a true encounter with our four-legged and feathered friends.
Feeding stations are located at the North American River Otters and the Asian Koi Fish pond. For 50 cents, grab a handful of feed to provide to the animals. The interaction between the guests and the animals provides a unique wildlife experience for you and great enrichment for the animals. The nutritional snack adds to their daily diet, but the interaction between animals and human also provides physical and mental stimulation encouraging behaviors resembling those for that species in a wild setting. Enrichment is intended to encourage behaviors that are appropriate for that species targeted, as well as to satisfy an animal’s physical and psychological needs.
Have you ever stood nose-to-nose with an 18 foot giraffe? Well, here is your chance. Visit the Zoo’s Giraffe Encounter Post located at the Giraffe exhibit in the African realm. For $2.00 per person guests can venture over a wooden deck and actually walk over the moat onto the Giraffe exhibit. With feed in hand, these gentle giants will venture over to greet you and your friends. There is no experience to match seeing these giant creatures literally only inches away.
Walk into the South American flight aviary. See a vast array of South American birds fly over head, swim in the ponds and walk about the aviary pathway. See turtle and other water creatures as you walk through the area they call home. Pull up a bench, take a break in the shaded environment. Listen to the sweet sound of birds singing and nearby children laughing. It is a great place to rest or escape for a moment.
