These past few weeks the animals have enjoyed lots of fun ways to cool off and enjoy the summer.
Big T enjoyed some refreshing watermelon.
Tater Tot had acacia branches
But even the heat could not stop little Snow Pea from playing while on vacation in Ripon, CA teaching kids and adults alike at the Color in the Sky Balloon Festival
Sitka, our Artic Fox, is back from his summer vacation. Our handsome fox spent his summer at the Long Beach Aquarium helping to educate the public about animals in the Artic. It did not take long for him to get adjusted to his old home, he went straight to digging holes and re-aquianting himself with his neighbor, Meadow! Plan a trip to the facility and come say hello to Sitka, as well to our 120 other animal ambassadors!!!
Our Bat-eared Fox, Acacia, is a smart girl. She is currently being trained for our shows, so she can become one of our many talented animal ambassadors.
Acacia has a bit of an attitude, but responds well to training.
We look forward to showing you this beautiful lady!

So many of you may know that the majority of our animals are active animal ambassadors, but what about the rest? Well, there are a few reasons why an animal may not be an active animal ambassador. Some are retired due to old age, or health concerns such as Kodi the bobcat. Others though, are still in training! Many animals participate in training excercises to help prepare them to go to shows – recently we have been taking a special interests in some of our smaller educational animals the sugar glider.
Pictured here is one of the sugar gliders enjoying a tasty snack as he gets more and more comfortable being handled and walked around with.
Some of these animals can still be seen at on-site tours, so if you are interested in meeting some of these ambassadors-in-training be sure to schedule a tour!
