Lions are unpredictable creatures, which is why you should never approach them in the wild or depend on them to babysit your pet gazelle. Have a brush with the animal kingdom with this Groupon.

America’s Teaching Zoo

Kiska the wolf was the first wild animal to roam the grounds at Moorpark College. She soon became part of the Exotic Animal Training and Management (EATM) Program. With the addition of landscaping and enclosures that mimic natural habitats, the program transformed into a 5-acre zoo with primates, coyotes, emus, and an African lioness. The zoo currently houses almost 135 animals and caters to students in the EATM. In addition to class work, they visit the zoo daily, learning how to train and care for exotic animals. Patrons can witness these interactions with the animals at the shows or during the animal demonstrations where student trainers present animals performing behaviors they have trained.

What some people are buzzing about:


I recommend anyone with kids or anybody that wants to check out some cool animals up close and personal to check this place out.

The fact that everyone there is in training and learning themselves makes it such an open environment to ask questions and learn things for yourself.
