Zoo Manners

The zoo is home to many honored residents.
We ask that you respect their health and well-being by following these rules:

The zoo is a no-smoking facility.

Respect Animal Diets – Do Not Feed!
Our animals have carefully formulated diets to meet their specific nutritional needs and we request that you please do not feed them. Because some animals are under strict diets for medical reasons, it is vitally important that this policy is followed.  Do not take food or drink into the Contact Corral at the Barnyard – the goats will find it!

Leave Your Pets At Home
Dogs and other pets are never allowed on zoo grounds, for the health of zoo animals as well as your pets. Service dogs are welcome, but we respectfully request they not enter areas where animals are free roaming, such as the Aviary & Barnyard.  Please notify the ticket booth if you have a service dog so that staff can facilitate your visit safely.

No Balloons or Dangerous Objects
Balloons are deadly to animals when ingested, so we request balloons stay outside the zoo. Objects such as balls, bats, projectiles or weapons of any kind are strictly prohibited in the zoo and will be confiscated. Bringing in outside alcohol is also prohibited.

Save Your Coins for a Wishing Well
Do not throw coins or any other objects into animal exhibits. These items can injure or kill animals.  If you notice coins or other potentially dangerous objects in an exhibit, please notify a staff member.

Teasing Is Mean!
For the welfare of our animals, we ask you not to tease, clap, whistle or yell at the animals at the zoo, and to refrain from chasing or holding Barnyard animals (including chickens!). No weapons of any kind are allowed in the zoo.  If you bring them in you will be asked to leave immediately and the police will be called.

Park Your Bikes Outside
…as well as your tricycles, scooters, skateboards and roller blades.  And please, no running.  This adds to the safety and enjoyment of all zoo visitors.

Contacting the Animals is Only OK in the Barnyard
Our other zoo residents are wild animals, and can bite or otherwise injure you. For your safety and theirs, do not attempt to touch or get closer to an animal than the safety barrier allows.

Photography is Welcome!
You are welcome to photograph or videotape any zoo animals, but you must stay safely behind any barriers and remain in the public areas at all times. If you are a member of the press, or on commercial assignment and need further assistance to photograph or videotape animals at closer range, please contact the zoo at (707) 442-5649 for more information.
