It was such a fun place to visit! The animals are beautiful and while taking care of. The staff seems very knowledgeable and caring for their fur babies. Just in case you didn't know, they do allow birthday parties, perfect for the little ones.

Best Zoo we've ever been to! We LOVE Sharkarosa! There are so many wonderful things to say about this place. My sister who lives in Aubrey brought us there when we were visiting and it was definitely the highlight of our trip. We did the Animal Encounter attraction with the Red Ruffed Lemurs and I would recommend it 100%. The lemurs were so lovable and gentle. They would jump on our shoulders and they were surprisingly light! You could barely notice them land on you. And when they take the fruit from you, they are so gentle and sweet. Also, it has to be mentioned–the staff is incredible. Every staff member we came across was not only inviting and kind, but they were knowledgable and passionate about the animals. 10/10! Great place to have a birthday party!

Cute little zoo with an interesting selection of animals. Never got to see a hyena so close before! Highly recommend their animal encounters with the lemurs, capybaras, and even Elvis the skunk! The encounters are reasonably priced if you have a larger group of people. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, too!

Closed This Holiday Weekend

We will be closed this weekend to focus on the care of our animals. Thank you to all of our guests and supporters that have gifted the animals enrichment. Stay tuned to see them opening their gifts! 
 
We can’t wait to see you and your family next weekend when the weather will be nice and sunny!!
