The Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo allows each guest to get as close to the animals as safety permits. To feel the silky soft fur of the chinchilla or see the muscles in a jaguar’s legs as he prowls within his naturalistic habitat are just a few of the experiences that will bring you closer to the animal world. We are home to over 300 species including amphibians, fish and invertebrates. Among them are bears to boas, leopards to lemurs, meerkats to monkeys, parrots to pythons, you’ll meet over 450 exotic animals on your zoo adventure.
