Virtual ZOOm Room Animal encounters are conducted via Zoom and are available to anyone from all over the world who has access to the internet. Animals are presented one by one in a formal presentation. Questions from the audience are answered as the presentation proceeds. A recording of the Zoom is sent to the client at the end of the presentation to watch again if desired.

Recommended Ages: 5+


Once in a Wild offers Virtual ZOOm Room Animal encounters, perfect for people who are social distancing, guests who may have family out of town, or for those who live outside our travel radius. This type of encounter is great for everyone! We can make the presentation more educational, or casual, depending on the needs of the client. This is a great option for classrooms, virtual birthday parties, office meetings, or any Zoom gathering at all. As long as you have internet access and a device to watch, we can bring the zoo to anyone from all over the world!


Here at Once in a Wild, we can bring the zoo to you via interactive virtual ZOOm Room animal encounters. Our animal staff is just as passionate and energetic on screen as they are in real life!


Anyone and everyone is welcome to join our virtual ZOOm Room. Imagine your reaction when a feisty ferret, a curious cockatiel, a slithering snake, or a tip-toeing tarantula appears on the screen! And all of our animals have their own unique personality. Whether it’s a rambunctious rabbit, a loveable lizard, an amazing axolotl, or a terrific tortoise, each of our animals creates plenty of fun moments to remember.

ZOOm Room animal encounters are a perfect way to allow viewers to experience the wonders of a zoo in the comfort of their own home. Whether it’s a classroom or a birthday party, we’ll present the animals while also giving unique facts about them and allow our viewers to ask any questions they wish.

Another way to utilize a ZOOm Room animal encounter is to create a fun team-building activity to boost morale and bring employees together! This break from the norm is perfect for remote workers and teams who can’t meet as often as they used to, and is a sure way to create a shared bonding experience while bringing them closer together.


We can bring our ZOOm Room animal encounters to animal lovers from all over the world! We may be based in San Antonio, Texas, but there are no limits to how far we can go! Contact us today to find out more!

Q: How do I book a viritual encounter, and what does this entail?

A: Please contact us at 210-445-5240 to speak to our booking staff (call or text.) Virtual encounters are conducted via Zoom, and you are able to select 5 animal species to meet during your experience. This encounter is very interactive, and typically lasts about an hour. We will schedule & create the Zoom meeting, and send you a link to share with family & friends who are invited. We recommend that ZOOm Room animal encounters include no more than 40 guests.

Q: Do I get to select the animals for my encounter?

A: Yes! Some types of encounters work well with certain animals (such as our Petting Zoo experience) but you can certainly request the animal species that attend your visit. Animals that ultimately show up are always subject to change, but you will be notified if this occurs. We always do our very best to bring the animals to your encounter that you especially want to meet.

Q: How else can I help the animals?

A: Donations can be made in cash, or via Venmo or Cash App. We also have an Amazon wish list on our website, and a Patreon account where you can sponsor our animals. We also accept donations in the form of supplies from the public as well. Please contact 210-445-5240 to find out more!
