This will be my Grandson's first visit to a zoo. He is now in 1st grade and I thought it would be a wonderful experience. He wants to be able to pet some of the animals. However I can't seem to find a "petting zoo" in your information. Do you have one? Please let me know we are planning to visit on September 13th. There will be 5 adults and 1 child, however all of us are children when it comes to the petting zoo.
Grandma Montgomery, The Sacramento Zoo does not have a petting zoo. For a great up close experiece check out our stage show at 11 am or if you want to learn more about our animals meet up with the Zookeepers at the afternoon exhibit talks, 2:15, 2:30 and 2:45. Check out the event board at the front of the Zoo for details.
Best, Zoo Web Keeper
