Rizzo’s Wildlife World in Flanders, New Jersey, boasts an extensive indoor zoo featuring exotic animals from all over the planet. Our wide diversity of animal species helps us educate visitors about nature. Creepy crawlies, cuddly mammals, reptiles, amphibians and other interesting animals await your discovery of a world filled with fascinating creatures. You’re sure to make some interesting new friends at the most fun and unusual meet and greet you’ll ever experience at an indoor zoo.
Our indoor zoo spans nearly 5,000 square feet with an assortment of exhibit space, including over 2,000 gallons of aquatic exhibits. You can get up close and personal with birds, bugs, lizards, snakes, turtles, small mammals and many other creatures. Our wildlife educators guide you through our exhibits and answer your questions about our fascinating friends.
Frolic with Rocket during our ferret fun time or pet furry friends like Tico the chinchilla, Marty the guinea pig or Olaf the albino African pygmy hedgehog. If creepy crawlies are more your style, meet Gross and Ew, our Madagascar hissing cockroaches, or Flik the stick bug. We also have plenty of slithering snakes, many of whom are quite large and might be tempted to give you a little squeeze to show their affection.
Our animals are used to hanging out with people and being handled, but they’re still animals. Our guides let you know which animals are safe to touch and teach you the proper way to pet them. If you’re interested in meeting specific animals up close, choose one of our scheduled programs that focus on your favorite creatures.
We hope to dispel the fears surrounding our rescued and captive-born animals with several series of unique and informative demonstrations. Our programs include combinations of invertebrates, amphibians, reptiles and mammals, including unique rainforest animals and some of the cutest, softest animals in the world.
Our goal is to provide a hands-on, interactive wildlife experience for everyone who visits our indoor zoo. If you can’t make it to our wildlife center, we also take our show on the road. Our travel out services bring the animals to you and are offered throughout New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
