If you have lived in Tallahassee for a while, you just went What??? There isn’t a zoo here. True! But there is a quite a few cool places where you can see animals!
Here are our favorites places to see animals in Tallahassee and the surrounding area!
Stroll the Museum’s elevated boardwalks and experience amazing living displays of native animals in their natural settings. Discover the rare Florida panther and red wolf, playful river otter, shy white-tailed deer, sleepy bears, tree climbing grey foxes, elusive alligator and other southern species. Observe and appreciate these ambassadors from the wild who live or once lived in the Big Bend region. These animals would not survive in the wild; they were either raised in captivity or have limited abilities as a result of injury.
