Nocturnal Building

The creatures of the night come out to play in the Nocturnal Building.

Nocturnal animals sleep during the day and are active at night. This building is on a reverse light cycle so visitors can watch the special adaptations necessary to live life after dark.

Come visit our special new arrivals, Gnocchi and Pesto! The darling twin baby pygmy slow lorises were born to parents Colby and Giorgio on March 5th, 2022. Pygmy slow lorises are endangered in the wild and only a small number live in zoos or aquariums here in the U.S.. We are so excited to have them here for our members and guests to visit and watch grow!
