Zoomobile Frequently Asked Questions

Program Topics for School Groups

Talk about a wild way to get your students excited about education — we’ll bring the NEW Zoo right to you!  Our live animal ambassadors will be sure to liven up any classroom, special event, or school assembly.  We offer a variety of pre-designed programs, or we can tailor one specifically for your group’s needs.  Just let us know!  Each of the following programs can be delivered as a Class or Assembly, unless otherwise noted.  Although geared towards certain grade levels, we can adapt our programs (listed below) for nearly any audience.  Call for details.

Animal Storytime

Our educator will bring a fun, animal-themed story book to share with the audience. After the story, students will be introduced to up to four different animals – at least one of which they may be able to touch (based on children’s ages).  Recommended for audiences aged 5 and under.

Home Sweet Habitat

Students will learn about different habitat types and the variety of animals that are found within them. Recommended for grades 1 through 4.

See an Animal, Be an Animal: Think About It

  • Through live animal demonstrations, students will learn about ways animals adapt to challenges in their environments, then compare those skills to the ways humans solve problems. Students will practice their own problem-solving skills through hands-on, team-building activities.

Zoomobile Programs for Private Parties and Events

Our most popular Private Parties are Birthday Parties.  These can be done at your home or other location, provided the location meets our temperature and other guidelines.  Each Private Party Zoomobile typically involves five animals.  Individual animals cannot be guaranteed in advance, due to animal temperaments and emergencies that can occur; however, we do take requests and try our best to accommodate them whenever possible.

Variety Party

This is our most popular Birthday Party program.  It includes visits from a “variety” of program animals, including mammals, reptiles, birds, amphibians and sometimes even invertebrates. Suitable for Presentation-Style and Meet & Greets.

Furry, Feathered Friends

This program focuses on the more “cuddly” critters in our Program Animal Collection.  Includes visits from birds and mammals.

Swim, Slither, Hop!

This program is geared towards those kids who love the “creepy crawly” critters!  Includes visits from animals such as our snakes, lizards, roaches and frogs.
