Explore Jr. Zoology at the Ark


Williamstown, KY

Ark Encounter

And God said, “Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds—livestock and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds.” (Genesis 1:24, ESV)

Zoology is the study of animals and their behaviors. From cute little sugar gliders to massive camels, Explore Jr. Zoology at the Ark offers an in-depth look at a variety of animals in God’s creation. Learn about animal kinds and dispersion of animals after the Flood through close-up animal encounters with our trained zoologists.
