If it weren’t for their helpful keepers, bats would sleep right-side up and brown bears would have no idea how to fill out their income taxes. Admire zoo-keeping excellence with today’s Groupon for admission to the Gulf Breeze Zoo near Pensacola. Choose between the following options:
- For $6, you get one adult admission (a $12 value).
- For $4, you get one child admission (an $8 value).
The Gulf Breeze Zoo houses more than 900 exotic animal species in a lush, tropical environment. Study prowling works of feline art as you meander past large cats along the zoo’s walking path, or scratch a thankful beast behind its ears in the expansive, hands-on petting area. Intrepid zoo maniacs can feed long-necked giraffes at their filling station ($3 for a feeding cup). An elevated boardwalk prevents herds of roaming deer, wildebeest, and ostriches from stepping on your safari clogs. A 20-minute narrated train ride aboard the newly renovated CP Huntington takes rail riders through the 30-acre veldt and into the heart of the hippo habitat, with departures running throughout the day ($3 extra).
