Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens

In 1923, Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens was nothing more than a firehouse with a rhesus monkey, which had been given to the Sanford Elks Club by a traveling circus. Eventually, the monkey was joined by several other animal friends, and the zoo, then known as Sanford Municipal Zoo, moved out to a 104-acre tract of land in 1975. It changed its name to Central Florida Zoo and began acquiring animals from all over the world. Now, more than 500 animals from 205 species can be seen on its grounds. Here's what else you can find:

  • Giraffe feedings: Visitors can get really close to the zoo's three male giraffes, Rafiki, Emba, and Gage, during daily giraffe feedings.

  • Endangered fossa (pronounced "fu-sa"): This animal from Madagascar brings to mind a cat and a monkey. It has sharp claws and an extra-long tail that helps it crawl headfirst down a tree and jump from branch to branch. In the wild, it feeds primarily on lemurs.

  • Family activities: In addition to exploring the animal exhibits, families can cool off at the Wharton-Smith Tropical Splash Playground, and pet the pygmy goats at the Barnyard Buddies Children's Zoo. Also can learn from Animal Care Specialists during a keeper chat or demonstration, goof around at the Kaboom! Playground.
