TURKEY TOSS: A THANKSGIVING FEAST FOR THE BEASTS

Saturday, November 19, 10:00 a.m. - 2:30 p.m.

 

Activities free with zoo admission or membership.

While we all get ready to mash the potatoes and whip the pie toppings, the zoo’s carnivores are lining up for a Thanksgiving meal that is truly a feast for the beasts. Watch the jaguars, wolves, grizzlies and other meat eaters tackle raw, store-prepared turkeys and see their carnivorous instincts in the raw. 

The turkey treats are part of the zoo’s excellent animal care program to help enrich the lives of the zoo’s animals, promote natural animal behavior, keep animals mentally and physically stimulated and engage zoo visitors.

 

May your Thanksgiving be filled with tender moments! 

And may your holidays be filled with tender moments.
