In honor of National Wildlife Week, animals have been making many appearances on TV! Check out this hilarious clip from Conan!
Featured are Pugsley, our albino Burmese python, and Gumbo, our American alligator.
(If you look closely enough, you can see our staff members Kim and Jackie!)
The sun was shining and our rosy boa named Rosie went outside for some exercise!
Rosie is a very curious snake and loves to smell everything with her tongue! She is very interested in shoes and trying to get up pant legs!
Although she is one of the slowest-moving species of snakes, she gets very familiar very quickly!
If you’d like to meet our friend Rosie and our other snakes at Wild Wonders, set up your reservation by contacting email@example.com or call 760-630-9230! Hope to hear from you soon!
Here at Wild Wonders we depend on the help of our incredible team of volunteers to keep our animals happy and healthy. We have over 20 volunteers who all come from different backgrounds and each greatly contribute to our success.
Being a volunteer is hard work, but the rewards are great! Here are a few pictures of some of our volunteers with their favorite animals.
If you would like to volunteer, visit our website and submit an application.
Everyone needs exercise. We often take animals out of their enclosures to get some extra exercise, sunlight, and experience a different environment. This helps keep our animals healthy and happy.
Wendy, one of WW’s keepers, took Siri, the serval, out for a walk around the compound. Siri likes to walk along the plants, smell everything, and explore. In the Savannas of Africa her long legs would help her see over the tall grasses. She can also use them to reach into burrows to catch prey animals like rabbits or rodents. On her walk she found an interesting burrow to explore. After a fruitless search with her paw, she tried to stick her head in there to see if anybody was home!
Then Brian, a keeper, and I took our 12 foot albino Burmese python, Pugsley, out for a slither in the sun. He seemed to enjoy exploring and tasting the new environment.
Other types of animals go into outside exercise enclosures. Some of the ones that can stay outside all the time come inside for a change of scenery! We want to treat these animals in our care as well as we can, and I think we do a pretty good job.
Sundays at the Zoo are always exciting. On this special day all the Snakes get their delicious lunch. Pugsley, our Albino Burmese Python, the biggest snake at the zoo always gets the largest dish. It may be hard to stomach but all animals need to eat.
Isn’t it amazing to watch? The power in their jaws, WOW!!!
