The New Miniature Donkeys, Sebastian and Dante, are here to welcome you back!
They now reside in the Crean Family Farm, waiting for you to visit them. These sweethearts are possibly the cutest breed you'll ever see!

The "Mediterranean Donkey" has been cherished in Sardinia and Sicily for over two thousand years. They were born last summer in Solvang, California and just celebrated their first birthdays!

Rides Maintenance Team

Kevin Jackson and Bob Davidson lead a team that does regular maintenance checks on all rides to keep them safe for the riders at the Zoo and assists with other projects around the Zoo to make it a safe, clean environment for our Zoo guests and animals residents (except the pigs, who like it a bit dirty)!

Rainy Day Blog

February 14, 2019

It's cold, wet, and worse yet for the Zoo, muddy! But I like the rain, so I decide I'm going out for a visit the Zoo on this rainy day. If you decide you want to visit the Zoo on a rainy day, though, make sure you call (714) 836-4000 to find out whether or not we are open. We sometimes have to close the Zoo if it is not safe for our guests.

Santa Ana Zoo Celebrates Ring-Tailed Lemur's Milestone Birthday!
Happy 35th Isaac!

The Friends of Santa Ana Zoo (FOSAZ), a non-profit organization, invites Zoo guests to join us in celebrating “Isaac” the ring-tailed lemur’s 35th birthday on Saturday, July 10!

Ring-tailed lemurs are easily identified by their long tails with 13 alternating black and white stripes. While movies may have you thinking about their dance moves, these prosimians are most often found relaxing both in the trees and on the ground of their habitat.
