- Lion Update: Please be patient as our lion cubs help us to figure out their new schedule.The three male lion cubs have separated from their pride, as this is a naturally occurring process that happens around this age. In addition to our main habitat, our lions at Naples Zoo also have a large yard behind-the-scenes. The cubs will rotate with mom and dad between the front habitat and backyard during the week, but the exact schedule has not been determined as we allow the pride to lead the change with some guidance from our animal care professionals.
- The playground is open. However, it will be closed daily from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm for cleaning.
