Naked Mole Rat

Naked Mole Rat

Naked mole-rats appear to be bald, but they are not completely hairless. They have sensory whiskers on their face and tail, which allow them to move backward just as quickly as they can move forward.

Gift Shop

Rosamond Gifford Zoo Gift Shop

The gift shop at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo offers a wide variety of items for your personal shopping and gift needs.

If you are purchasing a gift for someone with you -- perhaps your own little cub or two -- our staff is great at keeping secrets.  Just give us the sign and we'll sneak your surprises in a bag to have them rung up and waiting before you can say, "Let's go see the tigers."  We have even made "special deliveries" to vehicles in the parking lot to help you keep your surprise a secret. Let us know how we can help!

Located at the main entrance to the zoo, the gift shop is open 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The shop is closed on Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.

You may reach us at (315) 435-8511 x127 and ask for Renee or e-mail rross@rosamondgiffordzoo.org.
