Papanack Zoo

The official web site is http://papanackzoo.com/
The Zoo is a family owned and operated facility that has been breeding exotic animals and birds since the early 1980’s. In 1994, public curiosity prompted them to have a one-year trial opening to the public, and due to the motivating response that they received from the visitors that year, they decided to continue to ‘grow’ Papanack Animal Park, resulting in The Papanack Park Zoo you see today.

The zoo has a few rules but the most important rule relates to Sweetie, the White-Fronted Marmoset who died from eating poisonous red berries that had been picked from a bush and fed to her by one of our visitors. They were probably unaware of the consequences of their actions so please do not pick flowers and grasses to feed the animals – it can be fatal.
