Check out what’s happening at Caldwell Zoo! Here you’ll find both recent news and information on upcoming events at the Zoo.

construction update

The serpentine is open! Crews are putting the finishing touches on the elephant exhibit and overlook seating area with a projected completion of Spring 2017.

Giraffes may be viewed inside the giraffe building and most African animals are viewable from the lion viewing window.

Light snacks and drinks may be purchased at concessions located near the reptile building.

Baby alert

This winter we had eight little baby goats born. These little cuties have been jumping around and spending time with their mothers. Stop by the zoo this spring for a visit!

New species

Recently the zoo acquired a pair of caiman lizards. Native to the Amazon River basin, these lizards are highly aquatic and possess large scales and a tail similar to many crocodilian species. Their rounded teeth and powerful jaws help them crush the aquatic snails that they feed on. Right now our lizards are small, but when full grown they may reach up to 4 feet in length. Stop by the reptile building to take a peek!
