Fun petting zoo parties for San Diego kids with an adorable lineup of domesticated animals.

   

 

 

Cozy Chinchillas

INCLUDED IN ZOOFARI / ZOOTOPIA

Chinchillas are slightly larger and more robust than ground squirrels, and are native to the Andes mountains in South America. They live in colonies at very high elevations. Historically, chinchillas lived in an area that included parts of Bolivia, Peru, Argentina, and Chile, but today, colonies in the wild are known only in Chile.

The chinchilla has the densest fur of all mammals that live on land. By the end of the 19th century, chinchillas had become quite rare after being hunted for their ultra-soft fur. Domesticated chinchillas are sometimes kept as pets, and may be considered a pocket pet.

SUGAR GLIDER

Sweet Sugar Gliders

INCLUDED IN ZOOFARI / ZOOTOPIA

The sugar glider is a small, omnivorous, arboreal, and nocturnal gliding possum belonging to the marsupial family. The common name refers to its preference for sugary foods like sap and nectar and its ability to glide through the air, much like a flying squirrel.

Gliding serves as an efficient means of reaching food and evading predators.The animal is covered in soft, pale grey to light brown fur which is countershaded, being lighter in colour on its underside. The sugar glider is endemic to parts of mainland Australia, New Guinea and certain Indonesian islands.

   

Peaceful Doves

INCLUDED IN ZOOFARI / ZOOTOPIA

Usually domestic rock doves bred for small size and white coloration are released due to their homing ability.

Barbary doves carry a mutation that makes them completely white. These white Barbary doves are most commonly used in stage magic acts. White Barbary doves are sometimes released in large public ceremonies as a peace symbol, and at weddings.

Baby Hedgehogs

INCLUDED IN ZOOTOPIA

Hedgehogs share distant ancestry with shrews and have adapted to a nocturnal way of life. There are seventeen species of hedgehog in five genera found through parts of Europe, Asia, and Africa, and in New Zealand by introduction.

There are no hedgehogs native to Australia and no living species native to the Americas. Their spiny protection resembles that of the unrelated porcupines.

   

 

Sulcata Tortoise

INCLUDED IN ZOOTOPIA

The African spurred tortoise, also called the Sulcata tortoise, is a species of tortoise, which inhabits the southern edge of the Sahara desert in Africa. It is the third-largest species of mainland tortoise in the world. They are known as gentle giants.

Adults can reach 30 in and can weigh 230 lb. They grow very quickly, reaching 6-10 in within the first few years of their lives. They can live for more than 70 years.

Panther Chameleon

INCLUDED IN ZOOFARI / ZOOTOPIA

It is a common misconception that chameleons of any kind can change color to match any color of their environments. All chameleons have a natural color range with which they are born, and is dictated by their species. It is affected by temperature, mood, and light.

Like most species of chameleons, the panther chameleon is very territorial. When two males come into contact, they will change color and inflate their bodies, attempting to assert their dominance. Often these battles end at this stage, with the loser retreating, turning drab and dark colors


 

   

Cuddly Bunnies

INCLUDED IN ZOOFARI / ZOOTOPIA

European rabbit, which has been introduced on every continent except Antarctica, is familiar throughout the world as a wild prey animal and as a domesticated form of livestock and pet.

With its widespread effect on ecology and cultures, the rabbit (or bunny) is, in many areas of the world, a part of daily life and a source of artistic inspiration.

Cute Guinea Pigs

INCLUDED IN ZOOFARI / ZOOTOPIA

Despite their common name, Guinea Pigs are not in the pig family, nor do they come from Guinea in Africa. The origin of their name is still unclear; but they originated in the Andes of South America.

Their docile nature; friendly, even affectionate, responsiveness to handling and feeding; and the relative ease of caring for them have made and continue to make guinea pigs a popular choice of pet.

 

NOTE: The color markings or particular breed of the animals may vary by location

We come prepared for parties - rain or shine.
We bring carpet to lay down for parties indoors.


Farm animals like goats and sheep bring up food and chew it again to extract more nutrients through a process called regurgitation. Unlike ruminants that regurgitate and often carry parasites, our critters are clean, healthy animals any one can pet.
