Visitors can interact and have a picture taken with these "celebrities" at a given price though. These animals are spread out in the different parts of the two-story zoo.

Reminds me of Noah's Ark

Oh, wait! It really is designed as an ark!

Aside from the said animals, you could also see other animals in the Ark Avilon Zoo. They however can't be interacted with and is only for viewing purposes. These animals are; the tortoise, lion, tiger, marmoset, lemurs, and some different species of birds.

Visitors would also enjoy the Farmland Feeding Station where visitors could feed farm animals like rabbits, sheep, goats guinea pigs, and even a pony. You have to buy the food though.

Here's what your kids could see in Ark Avilon Zoo:

I visited Ark Avilon Zoo during the outbound education (field trip) of my class last 2016. I have observed that my students truly enjoyed their time in the zoo. I think interacting with the animals is way better than just watching them. I personally enjoyed feeding the farm animals.

Overall, Ark Avilon Zoo is the best place to bring your children for some hands-on learning. It is also a good place to conduct a field trip for grade school kids.
