The name Eclectus Parrot derives from the word “eclectic” because of the wide variation between males and females. In most Parrot species, the males and females are nearly identical but in Eclectus Parrots, the males are green and the females are varying shades of bright red, blue and purple.
The Eclectus Parrot is highly intelligent and is ranked in the top three of Parrot species for its talking abilities.
Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.Taylor F.

The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.Bill T.
