Many zoos allow you to see giraffes behind a fence or from the seat of a safari ride, but the Metro Richmond Zoo gives you the unique opportunity to feed and pet giraffes. This is an opportunity that few in the United States get to enjoy, but you can experience it right down the road from your Richmond neighborhood.
Each day, visitors to the Metro Richmond Zoo can purchase tasty treats to feed these gentle giants. Their 18-20 inch tongue is prehensile which allows them to grasp leaves and tickle your hand as they snatch up your offerings.
In addition to giraffes, visitors to the zoo will have the opportunity to feed and pet other species including barnyard animals, zebras and antelopes. This interactive experience will create memories that will last you and your family a lifetime.
