    They’re creepy and they’re kooky, mysterious and spooky – no, not the Addams family, we’re talking about PLANTS! Just in time for Halloween, join Naples Zoo’s Horticulture Manager Darryl Windham on Saturday, October 19th at 10:15 am in Safari Canyon for a Naples Zoo member chat about weird and unusual plants that grow in our own climate, like the boo-tiful Black Bat Flower seen here. Some lucky guests may just go home with a little “monster” plant of their own. The event is free for members. Non-members can purchase tickets for $5 (does not include Zoo admission).

    Naples Zoo at Caribbean Gardens

    Winter Fest
    December 21 and 22

    All of the animals at Naples Zoo made the good list this year and Santa is making an early stop to deliver presents! Zoo guests can enjoy meet and greet opportunities with Santa on Saturday, December 21 and Sunday, December 22 from 10 am - 3 pm. There will also be fun games and music for guests to get in the holiday spirit! Winter Fest is included in regular Zoo admission.

    Buy tickets online and save!
     

    In addition to special visits with Santa, our animal residents will receive holiday-themed enrichment all weekend. Events like this are part of the daily animal enrichment program. Proper animal husbandry by the Zoo’s professional animal care staff includes thorough cleaning, nutritional diets, veterinary evaluations, and daily recording of activities and health, but also mental and physical activities through behavioral enrichment. Enrichment begins with exhibit design, number and variety of animals living together, and also includes items for the animal to play with – or destroy, supplemental foraging activities, and even the use of scents and visuals to increase curiosity about objects. By rotating activities, animals consistently engage in something fun and thought-provoking – and the holidays provide a fun twist. Join us for this special weekend of holiday enrichment festivities! (Get here early for your best chance at seeing the animals tear into their gifts!)
