Message from an Animal

Have one of our animals help you say it.


Are you looking for a unique way to send a message to your loved one? Whether it’s a birthday greeting or prom proposal, let our animals be your wingman! All you have to do is come up with a message (six-word maximum) and we will create a one of a kind photo with the Zoo animal of your choice, featuring your personalized message.

Participation in activities are voluntary for our animals so we ask that you indicate a first and second choice for the animal.

Cost: $30

Two options for how your message will be sent:

Have your image printed as a 5 x 7 photo and mailed to you in a gift envelope


Receive a high-resolution, downloadable copy of your image

Choose from:

  • North American River Otter
  • Macaw
  • African Serval
  • Red-ruffed Lemur
  • Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake
  • Sloth (+$10)
  • Giraffe (+$10)

…and many more!

Say anything from…

  • Happy Mother’s Day
  • Miss You!
  • Happy Birthday
  • Thank you
  • I love you
  • Will you…?
  • Congratulations

If you can fit in six words or less, we can help!



Your message helps support our Keepers!

The animal care team at the Central Florida Zoo & Botanical Gardens are not only passionate about the residents here—many of them participate in conservation efforts near-and-dear to their hearts. The American Association of Zookeepers (AAZK) is a national organization focused on promoting professionalism and providing animal care specialists with training and conservation resources. In 2018, we launched the Central Florida chapter of AAZK. By sending a message from one of our animals, you’re supporting the Zoo’s animal care team and conservation efforts important to them.
