Animal Encounters - Lemur

Meet our Lemurs

In our Lemur Encounter, get up-close and personal with some of the zoo’s most charming, hilarious characters. This is a unique and rare opportunity to learn about black-and-white-ruffed lemurs and red ruffed lemurs while they climb on you, sit on your head, and snuggle during their playtime. Oh, and they love posing for photos, so keep your camera ready!


Must be 3 years or older to participate, each encounter ticket is $19.95 per person, plus a regular paid zoo admission. Tickets can be purchased with admission or in the park. Children under age 10 must be accompanied by a paying adult. No reservations are required.


What to Know

This keeper-supervised encounter is in a shaded, screened enclosure. However, we reserve the right to make last minute decisions regarding the group visit to ensure that it’s a safe and enjoyable experience for our guests, our keepers, and most especially, our lemurs.

If the weather conditions are questionable, please call ahead to check if we are still selling tickets. Encounters are not available during inclement weather.
