Roos n More Zoo in Las Vegas Part II

Roos n More Zoo in Las Vegas Part II

Roos n More Zoo is a privately owned non-profit zoo in Las Vegas. Well, it’s an hour drive outside of Vegas, but well worth the drive if you’re visiting the city! They offer a very unique hands on experience where you can meet and greet just shy of 400 animals.

This is part two of our Roos n More visit, and you can learn more about the story of how two vets unexpectedly started a zoo from part one here.

The asian sea otters were a talkative bunch. They liked crawling onto your lap and sometimes into your clothes (*PRO TIP: Wear pants and clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty).

The baby monkey room was Jacob’s favorite part of our visit. They can keep different species of monkeys and lemurs together while they are young, but once they hit adulthood, they live with their own species.

The Red Ruffed Lemur was the friendliest of the bunch. He was constantly jumping around asking for affection. He especially loved rubs right under his arms.

These guys were a little more shy, but later warmed up to us. The black spider monkey was mouthing words to me I couldn’t understand. :)

This little ring tailed lemur wouldn’t stop giving us kisses on the mouth. So flattered he liked us that much!

Right now the zoo is closed to the public, but hopes to reopen in January 2015. Be sure to subscribe to the newsletter on their website and check their facebook for updates.

If you haven’t already, don’t forget check out our photos of kangaroos (including a super sweet albino one!), owls, porcupines, and lots of other animals we posted last week. I’m rethinking my life calling to be a vet and take care of exotic animals! :)  Is it too late for me? What do you think?
