TUCSON, Ariz. — Did you know you can play with capybaras and porcupines right here in Tucson?

Funny Foot Farm is a petting zoo that features both exotic animals and traditional farm critters.

Visitors are given an in-depth educational tour unlike any petting zoo in the city.

"We have a lot of different animals. To start we have your normal farm animals - things like chickens, ducks, geese, goats, sheep, but our real love is our weirder exotic animals, particularly giant rodents," said Educational Director Georgi Macneil.

The capybara is the main attraction of the Funny Foot Farm. They're the world's largest rodent and they're even larger in personality.

Despite their size, they're super social and friendly, making for a unique face-to-face experience for children and adults.

Education is the main focus of the Funny Foot Farm, making it a great field trip destination for local districts. Now that school is back in session, the farm has implemented its school hours.

  • Sun - Thursday 9am - 6pm
  • Friday - Sunday 9am - 7pm

Funny Foot Farm is located at 2405 W Wetmore Rd.

General admission is $8 and an Exotics tour is $12.
