3 Palms Petting Zoo and Education Center

3 Palms Petting Zoo is an amazing experience for kids of all ages. We are Delaware's only Petting Zoo, proudly housing the State's only Alligator! While here, you'll have the opportunity to interact closely with exotic, domestic, & wild animals. Our mission is rescue; the animals on exhibit at 3 Palms have come here for sanctuary. Enjoy hand feeding and petting the Llamas, Alpaca, Goats, Ducks, Sheep, Geese, Donkey, Chickens, Pigs & Mini Pigs, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, and the Emu. You'll also see a Raccoon, Opossum, Skunk, Turkeys, Turtles, many rare & exotic Birds, and Delaware's only Alligator! Our Asia Aviary is home to Red Junglefowl, Peacocks, Exotic Pheasants, Black Sumatras, Mandarin Ducks, Indian Peacock Pigeons, and Partridge. You'll see Migratory Waterfowl, Pheasants, Turtles, and Cackling Geese in the North American Habitat. Finally in our third continental habitat, Africa, you'll see a pair of White Faced Whistling Tree Ducks, Guinea Fowl, Side-Neck Turtles, and our African Pygmy Hedgehog. Admission: $10 up to 5-person group. Additional donations help the animals even more & allow us to continue our mission! Visit our website for additional information!
