Zoo Central

Our home to a wide variety of animals and educational displays.

Some of the first animals you’ll notice are the black-crested mangabey monkeys that inhabit our beautifully muraled two-story exhibit at the heart of Zoo Central. You’ll come nose-to-nose with a large snapping turtle and admire the bright, colorful fish and corals in our saltwater reef tank. Griggs Learning Center is home to many of our small, furry, feathered and scaly friends. Parrots, snakes, lizards, and chinchillas are just a few of the animals in Griggs that serve as our education ambassadors.
