Feed the Giraffes!

Giraffe feeding

Posted August 2013

Did you know you can feed the giraffes at our MillerCoors Giraffe Experience? This exhibit includes a large outdoor giraffe enclosure, an indoor giraffe viewing exhibit, and an outdoor raised deck that allows you to feed the giraffes!

During your 30-minute giraffe feeding experience, a zookeeper or Zoo Pride volunteer will be on hand to answer your questions and to make sure the giraffe is close enough to allow for feeding. Next time you’re at the Zoo, please feed the giraffes and share your pictures on our Facebook page!
