It's a Zoo Life


Composed of a large and loving family that specializes in Exotic Animal Exhibits, they're really just a normal family that just so happens to be living The Zoo Life! 

If you're traveling through Pinetops North Carolina on Hwy 42, and you catch a glimpse of what looks like a zebra or several other exotic animals you're not seeing things, and your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. That was a zebra, and those goofy looking guys with the long necks are alpacas. You're passing by Its a Zoo Life, Bobbie Jo Abrams' Exotic Animal Exhibit, or what she simply calls The Zoo Life. Find them at 4313 NC 42 West, Macclesfield NC 27852

Its a Zoo Life is the only interactive exotic zoo in this area. A guided tour with us is both fun and educational. General Admission is $5 for children 5 and under & $10 for age 6 and up

Walk ins are welcome during the summer!! No appointment necessary!

Host a birthday party , bring your school group , church groups  or come join us for one of our zoo camps.  We can also  bring our animals to your event!
