Littlest Critters

A young orangutan, named Redd, sits on the back of an adult female orangutan as she lays in the grass

Celebrate Mother's Day with some of our favorite new moms and babies at the Smithsonian's National Zoo! Bring your little critter and get to know the newest Zoo babies, including our baby orangutan Redd and baby gorilla Moke.

FONZ preschool classes are designed for children ages 2 to 3 to discover a whole new view of the Zoo. “Adult-and-me” format classes use interactive learning stations, hands-on activities and crafts, Nature Play and exciting Zoo walks to engage your child’s sense of wonder and curiosity about wildlife and the natural world.

Note: FONZ preschool classes are for children and their adult buddies to enjoy together. Registration fee covers one child with adult.
