If you haven’t already heard… it’s HOT in Phoenix!
When it gets this hot we’re often asked how our animals handle the heat. We provide our animals with lots of ways to keep cool including plenty of shade, pools & ponds, misters, swamp coolers, air conditioned nighthouses, ice treats and even specially designed artificial rocks and platforms that are kept cool throughout the day. We are also sure to monitor our animals closely throughout the day for any signs of heat stress. Our animals are also very good at keeping themselves cool! Here we see Ali, a 669 pound Aldabra tortoise, spending some time in his pond to keep cool!
