The Brandywine Zoo is home to a pair of toco toucans, Pablo and Julio. Pablo, a female, who hatched in 2016 and came to live here in 2020 from an AZA facility in Florida, is slightly smaller than our male, Julio. Julio hatched in 2002, and came to the Brandywine Zoo from the Bronx Zoo in 2019. He has a few white scuff marks on his bill that make it possible to tell him and Pablo apart.

The Brandywine Zoo has been around for 115 years and continues to offer countless opportunities for fun and learning throughout the year.  From animal exhibits, events and other learning opportunities, such as Zoo School and camps, it’s a great way to spend a winter day in Wilmington.

What makes all of that even better?  Admission is free for everyone, now thru mid-March.  The zoo is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in January and will announce their February hours of operation soon.

The Brandywine Zoo is located in Wilmington, Delaware, along the Brandywine River in beautiful Brandywine Park.
