Feed for the Animals
$5.00 large feed cup with $3.00 refills
$3.00 small feed cup with $2.00 refills
Keep your cup for your next visit and just pay refill price.
You can purchase feed cups to feed many of the animals here at our park. You can feed animals that can come directly up to the fence using your hands, spoons, or through special feed tubes. Rules for feeding: never use your cup to feed them, do not pour feed on the ground, or throw feed at animals, and pay attention to signs because some species are on a special diet, so keep them healthy.
Food Allergies: Our feed for the animals does not have "peanut or nut" products on the label. However it is manufactured at agriculture facility that does process peanuts or peanut shells. Therefore we make no guarantees of its presence or trace amounts in our animal feed.
This is our interactive parakeet encounter where you purchase a parakeet feed stick for only $1.00 to feed our many fine feathered friends in our open bird aviary and many will actually land on your stick, hand, and even your head!
