Naples Zoo ZOObilee



Hand-Feed the Herd of Giraffe!
There's nothing quite like watching the world's tallest animal lean down to you and nibble a treat from your hand. Best of all, you can enjoy this experience every day between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. at Naples Zoo. For just $5, you'll receive a serving of three tasty leaves of romaine lettuce from Wynn's Market. It's an experience you won't forget as you get an incredible close up view of our elegant giraffe.

Feed Our Herd
“I had the incredible joy of doing this in Africa,” said the Zoo’s Director of Conservation Tim Tetzlaff. “I’m thrilled everyone now has the chance to do this here in Naples.” Hand-feeding is scheduled daily from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. At the exhibit, trained docents answer your questions so you can learn how little giraffes sleep each day and why high blood pressure is a good thing for these gentle giants!

 

Naples Zoo Director of Conservation talks about hand-feeding giraffes.

This bachelor herd was formed through the cooperation of nationally accredited zoos between Florida and California. The giraffe herd is now living in what will eventually be just a portion their exhibit as part of an all new African region within the Zoo.
