Cheetahs have come to Southwick’s Zoo! Soon you will be able to meet Kate and Logan who are 1 1/2 yr old cheetahs who have come to us from another facility. We are very excited to have them here and we are in the process of building an exhibit for them to be ready soon. Cheetahs are amazing creatures and they are already here off exhibit waiting for their new home to be ready. They are very even tempered animals and they are built for strength, speed and agility….and are incredibly beautiful! We are so happy to have them as a new addition to the zoo!
Come and meet our new Family! Two – toed sloths! Now on exhibit is a family of three who we are so excited about! They are located next to the chimpanzee habitat! Sloths are amazing creatures who do everything upside down!
We are proud to announce that Spotted Hyena have arrived at Southwick’s Zoo for the 2012 season. Hyenas are extremely intelligent animals with their cunning behavior, superior hunting/scavenging skills and vocalizations for communication….just to name a few. The new hyena exhibit is located right next to deer forest and the beautiful giraffe habitat. Stop by, watch for a while and learn about these amazing animals.
