Meet Three New Animals at the Eden Zoo

by Creation Museum on July 2, 2020

While the Creation Museum was closed during the COVID-19 situation, the Eden Zoo had three new residents join them. Learn more about each of these animals below.

Candace: Miniature Horse

Candace, the miniature horse, is enjoying her new home at the Eden Zoo! Candace came to us as a rescue. She and Ella, the miniature donkey, are often allowed to free-roam the back areas of the zoo to graze them down while keepers are present to supervise. You can see she’s got a big smile on her face and is so happy guests are back to give her attention!


Promise: Miniature Hereford Cow

The Eden Zoo also received a new resident just in time for reopening! Promise, the miniature Hereford cow, like Candace, transferred to the Creation Museum from the Ararat Ridge Zoo at the Ark Encounter. She’s settled in nicely, and you can see her enjoying a popsicle made of her favorite fruits and veggies.


Norbert: Banana Ball Python

Norbert is a three-year-old banana ball python, who has been donated by our animal health supervisor, Sarah Jo! She has kept him as a pet since he was only three months old, and he has already been featured many times in our zoo programming and Creepy Crawlies workshops for kids.

He is now a permanent resident of our zoo and can’t wait to meet everyone!
