Two New Zoo Family Members


porcupinesLuray Zoo welcomes two new zoo family members! Two cute prickley little african crested porcupines. They are only a few weeks old and are doing great! They will not be on display until they are older. We will be setting up some meet and greet times so zoo patrons can visit them. The first meet and greet will be 9/13/15 at 2pm. We do need some help naming the little ones so think of some names.  Use the form below to help us name these new zoo members (One is a boy and one is a girl)
