Animal Encounters

Pig-Casso Paint Program

At the Pig-Casso Painting Party, children watch as our resident guinea hog reveals her artistic side. You will learn how zookeepers train animals, and why training is an important practice in zoos. Put paint to canvas as you create your own personal piece of art. There is a catch… you will have to paint like Madame Mazell. Look mom, no hands! This is a snouts-only art class; when you paint like a pig you can really go hog-wild!

What to bring: camera, bug spray and water

Meeting place: At the "Pig-Casso Paint Program Meets Here" sign in the Animal Forest, just past the Bear Habitat

Price: $10.00 per participant plus park admission. No more than 5 participants per session. 

Behind the Scenes - The "Otter" Side of the Fence Program

When you think of otters, what do you think?  Cute, cuddly critters, right? Come find out the truth for yourself, up close and personal. You are invited to see the "otter" side of the fence, or wall in this case, as we take you behind the scenes of the otter habitat. The otters are pretty amazing, and you'll get a rare opportunity to see the training that goes on behind the scenes to ensure their good health. Please allow at least 15 minutes to walk from the parking lot to the Animal Forest otter habitat.

What to bring: camera, bug spray and water

Meeting place: Otter habitat in the Animal Forest

Price: $5.00 per participant plus park admission. No more than 10 participants per session.

To book either of these experiences, please call the park at 843-573-8517 to select a date and register. Programs must be paid for at the time they are booked. Bookings must be made at least 48 hours in advance.
