And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” (Genesis 1:24)

Zoology is the study of animals and their behaviors. From cute little sugar gliders to massive camels, Explore Jr. Zoology at the Ark offers an in-depth look at a variety of animals in God’s creation. Learn about animal kinds and dispersion of animals after the Flood through close-up animal encounters with our trained zoologists.
