Summer is a great time to venture out from our Redmond apartments and visit zoos and farms. You can see tigers, alpacas, snakes, and so many more furry and scaly creatures when you head to one of these animal attractions near Redmond.
The Cougar Mountain Zoo houses not only cougars, but also Bengal tigers, gray wolves, Siberian reindeer, lemurs, swamp wallabies, and many varieties of cranes and macaws. During your visit, you can choose to experience the tigers up-close from inside a glass tunnel that passes straight through their habitat! You can also get up close and personal with the cougars by placing tasty morsels for them to find. If you prefer to get to know the zoo's magnificent and exotic animals from the comfort of your apartment, visit Zoo2u, where members of the zoo staff will introduce you to the animals virtually.
The largest alpaca farm in the larger Seattle area, the Cascade Rose Alpacas farm is nestled at the feet of the Cascade Mountains and is home to 60 "adorable and fuzzy" alpacas. Schedule a tour and meet these gentle animals! You will have plenty of photo opportunities, as well as the option to feed them by hand. Alternatively, you can reserve the furnished campsite and experience alpaca farm life at your leisure, including inner-tubing down the Snoqualmie River.
Home to the most extensive reptile display in the Pacific Northwest, The Reptile Zoo features a two-headed turtle, an albino alligator, a variety of lizards, and many kinds of snakes, including cobras, rattlesnakes, and the world's deadliest snake: the black mamba. Tour the vivariums during regular visiting hours, or plan ahead to watch a live feeding. Before your visit, call and ask about the adoption program if you’re interested in taking home and caring for your own reptile! If you prefer to experience these attractions from the comfort of your apartment, check out the education and media sections of the zoo's website, or schedule a reptile party with the renowned Reptile Man.
