As the weather begins to warm up, maybe it's time to take a walk on the wild side.

Most people don't know this, but you can see a whole other side of Zoo Atlanta with their Wild Encounters.

The program can help you go one-on-one with the creatures in some of Zoo Atlanta's exhibits.

From lions, to large elephants to the world-famous pandas, you can check out the wild wide of all the close-ups with Zoo Atlanta's creatures.

FOX 5's Jaclyn Schultz got to meet Shuffles Patches and Corky, the Aldabra tortoises, in their home.
