Meet a Mammal

  • Meet a Mammal

On the morning of Saturday, May 12, Friends of the National Zoo members are invited to Meet a Mammal, where they'll get up close and personal with some new friends at Small Mammal House!

This free event takes place from 8 to 9 a.m. (before the house opens to the public) and features several of Small Mammal House's charismatic animals on the other side of their habitats. Members will also be able to chat with the keepers who work with these animals every day.

This event has limited capacity and is first-come, first-served, so please arrive early. No tickets are necessary, but membership cards will be checked at the door. The animals that members can meet will be determined on the day of the event.

We're excited to see you on May 12!
