Feed A Giant Tortoise

Meet our ancient giants of Aldabra as well as their cousins, the Radiated Tortoise from Madagascar! See, feed, and touch one of the world’s largest living tortoise species in one of the few Wildlife Connections that allow guests to actually enter the animals’ zoo habitat. You’ll be able to visit with our resident tortoises and feed them a meal of fresh fruit and veggies. Keepers will talk about each tortoise, what Hogle Zoo is doing to save tortoises in the wild and how you can help! Proceeds from your Tortoise Feeding support Utah's Hogle Zoo’s own Radiated Tortoise- Madagascar Program
