Animal Play Days are scheduled events where Zoo animals are given enrichment items that have a specific theme. For this Play Day, Zoo residents will be celebrating Mother’s Day! Keepers will begin distributing enrichment items at Gorilla Island at 11:00 a.m. and will spread out to the surrounding exhibits throughout the day. Animal enrichment provides novel food and play items to stimulate and entertain zoo inhabitants. It is performed on a daily basis at the Zoo and is a vital component essential to the health and well-being of our animal collection. This event is free with the purchase of general admission or Zoo membership. For more information, call the Zoo at (956) 546-7187.
