Come and play with our friendly goat herd for FREE! You’ll be delighted by their antics!
Petting area times vary by season, so check your daily schedule upon arrival at the Ark, or check with a zoo staff member. Be aware that the petting area will close during inclement weather.
Yes! We allow guests to touch the goats in our petting area, but we ask that parents always supervise their children. Zoo staff are always present to ensure animal interactions are safe and respectful.
Many of our goats are mixed breed rescues. Overall, we have a mixture of LaMancha, Nigerian dwarf, Nubian, and pygmy goats. The boys have blue collars, and the girls have purple collars. They all have their names on their collars.
