What can’t you miss at the Montgomery Zoo?

Mainly, you can’t miss Montgomery Zoo’s animal exhibits- it is home to over 150 species brought from all around the world. Observing them interact and play with each other is a very thrilling part of the visit.

Another sensational experience at Montgomery Zoo is when the zookeepers feed the animals. I recommend you check out what activities are prepared for your visiting day so you don’t miss them- very interesting!

In “The Children’s Zoo,” kids are allowed to feed and pet various animals in a barnyard such as alpacas, donkeys, sheep, goats, or prairie dogs. They will never forget this experience.

To complete your fun-filled day, children can also enjoy the ride of the insect carousel and play on Nature Trek bridges & walkways.
