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. Griggs Learning Center is home to many of our small, furry, feathered and scaly friends. Parrots, snakes, lizards are just a few of the animals in Griggs that serve as our education ambassadors.
