For a limited time, you can purchase a "Giraffe Kiss" print created by the zoo’s giraffes Mokolo, Gerald and Dhoruba, or a jaguar paw print painting by one of our jaguars, Inka. These replica prints are made from high resolution scans of the original canvas pieces. They measure 8x10" and are printed on heavy card stock. Perfect for framing! Prints are $20 each. Prints can also be added to the purchase of a new Animal Adopt Package for $10 each.

Replica prints will be shipped in a sturdy mailer to prevent bends and tears.
