Capybara & Tapir Encounter


Don't Worry - Be Capy!

It Tapirs it’s time for fun! 

** Disclaimer - Tapir are temperature sensitive, conditions may prevent tapir from participating in early Spring & Fall.  Our capybaras will be ready and waiting!

Join our keepers on exhibit & behind the scenes for an interactive, educational and hands on experience!

Start with meeting our adult capybaras on exhibit, to offer them a treat and some scratches while learning about this critter crew! The world's largest rodents have many amazing facts to learn about!

Time to then transition to meet Tucker the Tapir!  This amazing species has so many interesting facts to be shared – and of course he is an absolute sweetheart – welcoming your scratches and treats! 

Baby capybara play time? That is the plan next!  Snuggle and love on our little ones, as long as they are willing! They love a belly rub and treats!  This will be done in a private encounter area, away from general admission guests and next to the main exhibit. 

Bring your camera to capture some amazing memories!
