The Critter Squad solves the one problem that a majority of kid's parties face: a lack of chinchillas. The expert handlers roll up to celebrations with reptiles, bugs, cute mammals, or an eclectic mix—their menagerie includes almost 30 species, and runs the gamut from Cochita, a Brazilian short-tail opossum, to Long John, a Burmese python. Thanks to daily handling and etiquette lessons from Emily Post's pets, the animals are all very tame, so kids can pet their new friends fearlessly under the handler's supervision.

The nonprofit Wildlife Learning Center populates its ancient olive grove with more than 50 species from across the globe, teaching visitors the value of conservation while raising funds for wildlife sanctuary and public education through its Wildlife Learning Foundation. Alongside a circular walking path, a menagerie of animals, including lynxes, arctic foxes, kinkajous, and college sports mascots, frolics within landscaped enclosures. Throughout the afternoon, friendly biologists give training talks on the hour and facilitate up-close interaction with various critters. The zoo also hosts children's camps and birthday parties for precocious naturalists to ensure a future generation of nature-savvy citizens.
Classified as small apes, the endangered gibbon hails from Asia where it acrobatically launches itself across distances of up to 40 feet, easily leaping through trees or to the front of a long checkout line of holiday shoppers. At Gibbon Conservation Center, visitors can revel in up-close glimpses of more than 40 gibbons representing five different species. As visitors stroll through the grounds, they can listen to the musical mammals–known as the songbirds of the primate family–croon in high-pitched but melodic yawps. They can also learn about the 36-year old center's efforts to conserve the endangered primates through public education and conservation.
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.
