Animal Planet Expo

Animal Planet ExpoAnimals! Pythons, vultures, kinkajous, Frisbee dogs, your dog, bugs, butterflies, ants, and much more will be featured at Animal Planet Expo at the Santa Clara County Fairgrounds this weekend.

There will be something for everyone, including the family pet (dog), to explore and celebrate the important role animals play on this planet. Visit the Bug House to see some of the aforementioned bugs; Animal House (no, not…) where animal experts introduce exotic species from around the world; Kids’ Zone: wildlife face painting, obstacle course, “King Croc”, an inflatable crocodile slide that is over 30 feet long; also, Spider Mountain – a 20-foot high climbing attraction.

Pet Den will provide pet adoption opportunities and helpful information on how to find the perfect pet for your family. Pet Den will host “Ask the Vet” sessions, where pet owners can meet one-on-one with a local veterinarian.

Dog Park will have activities for your dog; also, your pet can quench their thirst at the Pet Misters and Watering Holes.

Wildlife explorer Jeff Corwin will be available for autograph signing from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Frisbee dog show times are 11:00 am, 12:30 pm, 2:00 pm and 3:30 pm.
