Little Ray’s Hamilton Show Schedule:

Throughout the day we are alternating interactive educational hands on demonstrations with highly educational feeding demos. Visitors can expect to be at the zoo a minimum 90 minutes but should budget for a good 2 hours or more. Each of these demonstrations are 30 minutes or more and we sometimes go over time which pushes the next formal show back.

Please NOTE: We often have a special interactive educational PowerPoint program on Friday’s from 10:30 to 11:30. As well we often have special guest animals on Fridays in the Summer and on weekends. These special PowerPoint programs and special guest animals are incredible unique programs. These programs will supersede regular hands on and feeding demos on the days they are running. Please watch our Facebook Page for any of these unique programs. We will be sure to promote them the week before if not sooner.
