Animals at the Zoo
At the World of Discovery, we have over 70 different species of animals, including reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. From our tiny dart frogs to our 18 foot long reticulated python, you will see a variety of sizes, colors and types of animals from around the world. Our collection includes large and unusual species including crocodile monitors, Cuvier's dwarf caimans, an anaconda, and a blue tree monitor. We also have a few species of threatened native Michigan reptiles. About 80% of our animals were rescued or surrendered, and have found a home here with us.
Sponsor an animal at the zoo! Sponsorships help pay for the basic care of the animal including food, water and heating.
Here is a sampling of the animals that will be at the Conservation and Rescue Center.
