Where: Meet our staff at Stone Zoo’s front gate 10-15 minutes before your scheduled encounter. Please note: At this time, tortoise feeds are not offered at Franklin Park Zoo.

Weather: This special opportunity is weather-dependent. In the case of rain, the feeding will be cancelled and tickets may be refunded or exchanged for another day.

Health & Safety:

  • Safety protocols must be followed while within the Zoo, including the use of a face covering. View our FAQ page for full details. 
  • Close-toed shoes are recommended.

Please note, the tortoises move at their own special pace, so we cannot guarantee their activity level during your feeding session. There will be no direct touching or contact with our reptile friends, but we do hope you have a great time meeting them up close!
