Do you know what Giant Anteaters eat? Ants of course! But how do we feed them? Find out the answer to this question, and many others, by booking a "Dig It" experience! You will be able to meet the Animal Keepers that care for these incredibly interesting insectivores, and participants will get the opportunity to feed them one of their favorite treats, and it's not ants! During the feeding, guests will be able to see the anteaters 2 foot long tongue! Please note, although guests are able to feed the anteater, there is no touching or petting permitted. This is for the safety of all of our guests. Click "Sign Up Now" to reserve your spot today!
