A magnificent menagerie of giant mammals awaits guests this summer! The now-extinct animals once roamed the world during the Ice Ages – some dating back 2.4 million years. Meet the animatronic life-size creatures as they move, rumble, and roar in their outdoor forest.
$4 – Adults
$4 – Children
As recently as five thousand years ago, the Ice Age time periods included these giant animals called megafauna, like saber-toothed tigers, woolly mammoths, and short-faced bears, many of which guests can see in this dynamic display!
Trek through the Zoo’s forest and marvel as extinct creatures are brought back to life. Breathing, roaring, gnashing teeth, turning their gaze, and flicking their tails — these mighty beasts can’t wait to meet visitors. Get face to face and then visit some of the giants’ modern-day counterparts at the Zoo!
