John Ball Zoo has something for everyone. A whole family of red pandas is just the beginning! Come and see the wild things we have in store for you. This season, guests will experience BRICKLIVE Supersized! Be the first in North America to see how this exhibition magnifies nature’s small and mighty life forms into towering works of art. Imagine a twelve-foot tall tarantula, a gigantic spitting cobra, and an overgrown Venus flytrap made of colorful toy bricks. This spectacular Zoo-wide exhibit of more than 30 sculptures is certain to capture the imagination and spark curiosity.
