Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo

1204 Gulf Shores Pkwy, Gulf Shores, AL 36542 | 251 968 5731

Whether you want to hear the infamous roar of Simba, the African lion, or the “oohs” and “ahhs” of the Capuchin monkeys, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo has it all. From close to 500 animals, 118 species, 22 critically endangered, endangered, vulnerable, or near threatened species, you can have the experience of a lifetime.

Animal Encounters
In addition to the regular exhibits, the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo in Gulf Shores Alabama offers animal encounters to give you and your children a unique opportunity to learn about certain species in an up close and personal format. The Kangaroo Encounters is a chance to cuddle adorable baby red kangaroos, while the Lemur Encounters will have you laughing out loud at the hilarious antics of these crazy animals (these silly creatures are our favorites!). Stroll through the Gulf Shores Alabama zoo’s Reptile Garden and perhaps you will have the opportunity to hold a giant snake or a baby alligator, and the Sloth Encounters offers a rare opportunity to get close to the giant sloth.
