Should you also want a sneak peak before heading out, on a day that doesn’t involve many other activities, check out Zootube, to preview what’s in store.

Plus,  if you don’t want to expend all of your energy hiking the grounds of the zoo, carts are available for rental to see animals without tiring your feet. Save that energy for all the other fun activities around the vicinity of the Gulf Shores vacation rentals.
