We’ll surprise you with a selection of delightful critters; it is not possible to reserve specific animals when you schedule your ZooMobile.

Booking Your ZooMobile

Before you book, please be sure to read our policies and procedures. Note that ZooMobiles are an educational presentation for schools, organizations or festivals; we do not provide animals for a “petting zoo” experience, birthday parties, or private residences.
