Zoo Labs

Looking for an engaging dissection for your group, but don’t want to worry about all the mess? Don’t stress! When you register for a Zoo Lab at the Memphis Zoo, we make sure your group has everything they need to participate in one of our hands-on dissection programs, and we worry about the clean up, so you don’t have to.

Whether you are learning about owls’ unique digestive systems while discovering what is inside an owl pellet or examining the internal and external structures of frogs, or diving deeper into the mammalian organ system of rats, we have everything prepared for you and your group for your visit to the Zoo! These Zoo Labs are not only perfect for school groups, but also for homeschool groups and scouts too!
