Different animals like the Scarlet Parrot, Lesser Anteater, the Eurasian Eagle Owl and the Serval Cat This are featured in the show.

The zoo staff also offers hands of experience to animal education.

"If there is a special animal that a school is studying about and we have that animal here, we're more than happy to do a special segment on that" says Oldenburg.

Many of the animals, like have been taught to communicate with the audience.  The zoo is open 7 days a week from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. and if you're interested in the zoolive show, they're performed every weekend, multiple times through out the day.
