My daughter loves Raz (and all red pandas) so much, that she had a Raz cake for her 10th birthday 😊
Cute creatures.
Wonderful day at the Hemker Zoo! Love the animals and the staff. Give it a visit! You'll be glad you did!
We had so much fun today! Great staff and extra safety precautions in place!
Still missing! If seen, please DON'T CHASE! Call this number. Please share...
I loved my Easter Basket from the Hemker Park and Zoo! I am obsessed with giraffes and so this was the perfect gift I could get!
I thought it was a family reunion not a day at the zoo. We will not be there as our granddaughter is getting married that day.
Kuhnau family reunion to be held here on Sunday, August 13, at 11am.
My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Zoo today! Thanks for making this wonderful place for people to enjoy! Haha she even got into a staring contest!
My husband and I took our Granddaughter (5) to Hemker Park and Zoo on Friday 8/30 for our last summer time fun. This zoo was recommended to me by a couple of friends. I was amazed. This is a fantastic place for young and old. My granddaughter has never been so excited after being to a zoo -- she loved it! I loved it. My husband said it was the best zoo he has been at since he was a kid. I cannot say enough good about this place. It is a bargain...they have so much here! Beautiful surroundings, well kept, the park/picnic grounds were immaculate. I recommend this to everyone!
Yes they have otters !
Thank you once again for allowing our large group to come in to visit you! Thanks also for ordering such a perfect weather day as well! We had 112 people in our group, and we got a great response from all of them! Such a great place to visit and learn 😀

Lashes for days!!!
Southern Ground Hornbills have very long eyelashes which help to keep debris out of their eyes since they spend the majority of time on the ground.

Happy International Zebra 🦓 Day!!!

Did you know? Zebras are members of the horse family. They have excellent hearing and eyesight and can run at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. Usually the lead male of the herd, called a stallion, stays at the back of the group to defend against predators, if necessary. When zebras are grouped together, the stripes make it had for a lion or leopard to pick out one zebra to chase.

When your eyelashes are on point😍

White-cheeked turacos are an African bird species found in the countries of Eritrea, Ethiopia, Sudan and South Sudan. Turacos are diurnal, meaning they are active during the day, and will spend much of their time feeding.
