Animal Adventures is an animal education center that introduces youngsters to a collection of exotic animals, many of which were rescued from neglect or abandonment. The hands-on, guided wildlife adventure tour acquaints tykes and their parents with a rotating roster of resident mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and bugs, letting guests safely pet Big Al the alligator, or wax philosophical with Flash the ring-tailed lemur. As kids introduce themselves to the center's 6-foot-long Asian water monitor or debate the proper way to shake hands with a snake, Animal Adventures' safety-minded guides dispense facts that help instill a greater appreciation for the animals and their 12-branched judicial system. Guided tours run throughout the day during the center's normal hours, and allow tots plenty of time to befriend beasties by not holding guests to strict beginning and end times. Groupon holders who nab today's deal will also receive 10% off any purchases in Animal Adventures' gift shop.
A haven for exotic animals rescued from neglect or abandonment, Animal Adventures lets visitors interact with its furry and scaly refugees, teaching them firsthand to appreciate and respect the earth's diverse wildlife. Working with a rotating cast of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and marsupials, animal experts regale audiences with facts and the backstories of each animal, such as how they were rescued and which cartoon representative of their species best captures their regional accent. Though its denizens regularly find new homes, Animal Adventures's altruistic menagerie has included a massive alligator snapping turtle, a canadian lynx, and an asian water monitor. The sanctuary also offers day camps for youngsters looking to get closer with the animals, and an animal-adoption program for adults looking to support the cause by taking a critter home and putting it through college.
