From its humble beginnings with just two animals to its present state with more than 725 animals from over 200 species, the Little Rock Zoo is always growing, bringing new and more exotic animals for you to enjoy. Spend the day getting acquainted with elephants, monkeys, giraffes and big cats in zoo enclosures that mimic their natural habitats. With so many animals to see you won't know where to start. Why not take the guesswork out of it by taking a guided tour? For another look at your favorite zoo animals, take a seat in the Civitan Amphitheatre and watch animal presentations and demonstrations.
To ensure you don't miss any of the exhibits, take a relaxing tour of the zoo aboard the Civitan Train. Make sure one of your stops is the Kiwanis Kids' Corner, where children can play on the playground and surrounding area.
For an even more in-depth look at animals, children will enjoy the ZooFari classes. Held during the summer months, these zookeeper-led classes share interesting facts and little known information as well as up close encounters with various zoo animals. For another unique way to see the zoo, participate in one of the Zoo Snoozes. Find out what happens when the zoo closes as you spend the night among the animals. This rare opportunity to see the zoo after dark gives you the opportunity to see the animals in a whole new light.
