PHOENIX — The Wildlife World Zoo, Aquarium & Safari Park in Litchfield Park has had a busy spring welcoming babies from multiple species to the zoo family.

A baby African leopard, baby warthogs and black backed jackal pups are the newest additions to the more than 6,000 animals on the display at the park.

All of the young animals have been receiving around-the-clock care by the experienced Wildlife World hand raising team and two veterinarians inside the zoo’s nursery, according to the zoo.

Other babies on display throughout the 100-acre park include a tapir, giraffe, endangered addax and Arabian oryx.

Wildlife World Zoo at 16501 W. Northern Avenue is open seven days a week, including all holidays. The exhibits are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with the last zoo admission for the day occurring at 4:30 p.m.

Admission includes access to the zoo, aquarium (which is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and safari park.

We want to hear from you.
