Apr 21 2020, 10:43 am

From now until the end of June, you can invite a camel, giraffe, alligator, and other animals to your Zoom call.

Wild Florida, “the world’s only Airboat, Gator & Drive-thru Safari Park,” located on Lake Cypress in Kenansville, Florida, is offering this limited-time experience to families and businesses.

During the call, guests will receive a brief educational lesson regarding the specific animal and are free to ask any questions that they may have.

The calls last 20 minutes and are available from 10 am to 4 pm EDT, Monday through Friday.

When booking the Zoom call, customers need only provide the link to the chat and their Wild Florida animal guest will join in from there.

“This isn’t your average video call,” Sam Haught, co-owner of Wild Florida, said in a press release.

“While families and businesses are all following the state’s stay-at-home order, the urge for adventure and fun still exists. We are looking forward to giving this unique opportunity to our fellow animal-lovers who are looking for something fun to do. And we know the animals are just as excited!”
