Two by Two Petting Zoo

 

The Traveling Zoo with the Roo!

Two by Two zoo was established in 1993 by the Iannucci Family; Peter, Heather, Jessica and Casey. They are not your typical petting zoo, but rather an educational traveling zoo with a message!

Conservation Through Education, Let’s Make a Difference!

Most of our animal ambassadors were adopted and have been placed with us voluntarily. They now have spacious enclosures, nutritional zoological diets, scheduled veterinary care and daily enrichment/ socialization activities.

We have had the wonderful privilege of travelling all over the Northeast with our unique animal exhibits. We are at every event to provide the public with interesting facts, educational information and to answer any questions they have. We are always eager to speak with the public!

We truly enjoy what we do! Our goal is to ensure that our animals’ safety, health and overall happiness are top priority. They are our Family!
