In Person Experience

 



Raccoon


Lucy is curious and loves to explore her environment and learn new skills. She enjoys almost any food reward, especially banana chips, raw chicken, grapes and peanut butter.


 


North American Porcupine


Skyáana is gentle and confident, determined to do exactly what she wants to do when she wants to do it. She’s a natural climber and will gladly climb for some yam, corn or piece of fruit.


 


Striped Skunk


Harry arrived at Woodland Park Zoo in 2017 and his keepers are still getting to know him and his likes and needs. Stay tuned for more details!


 


Arctic Fox


Hudson is a clever, playful fox. He loves heavy-duty squeaky toys and working with his keepers—especially when they have snacks! Arctic foxes are only white in the winter. Hudson is quickly shedding his perfect white coat and slimming down into a more svelt grayish fox.


 


Nine-banded Armadillo


Amarillo can move fast when he wants to, but he usually takes his time, distracted by his amazing sense of smell. Although he’s small, Amarillo is capable of jumping 2 to 3 feet in the air!


 


Three-banded Armadillo


Eduardo is small but has a big personality! He loves interesting smells such as stinky shoes. We enjoy watching him scuttle across the stage, which he’ll gladly do for some tasty mealworms.


 


Pot-bellied Pigs


These playful pig sisters love spending time with each other and with our keepers who work (and play) with them every day. Their favorite things include snacking on fresh veggies and getting belly scratches.


 


Donkey


Rico the donkey has gray fur and Sam the donkey is white and brown. Donkeys are one of the smaller members of the horse family. They are intelligent, playful and quick to learn.


 


Steer


Don’t call them cows! Rufous (with reddish brown fur) and Remy (with black fur) are both male steers. They are gentle and curious, and enjoy getting head-rubs and snacks.


 


Goats


We have 13 goats in our herd! Jax is a pygmy goat with a compact build. Adam and Sparky are Nubian goats with floppy ears. The rest are kinder goats, a cross between the Nubian and pygmy breeds. They are all quite curious and social.


 


Bunnies


Winston the rabbit has tortoise-shell fur, with lovely dapples of orangey-brown and black. Keaton, with the gray fur, is our Flemish giant rabbit. His breed is one of the largest in the world—males can weigh 15 to 20 pounds!


 


Guinea Pigs


All the guinea pigs came from a local guinea pig rescue in Auburn, Washington. They were once unwanted pets, and now they are superstars with a great life at the zoo!

In the wild, guinea pigs are very social and tend to live in small, bonded groups. In our group, Sofia (dark brown, short hair) is the leader!


 


Sheep


Sophia and Loren are very polite girls with rather reserved temperaments. Like many of us, fitness is important to Sophia and Loren; these girls wear FitBarks to keep track of their steps every day! We're sure you'll love these ladies.
