Animal Play Day @ Gladys Porter Zoo |  |  |

Animal Play Days are scheduled events where zoo animals are given enrichment items that have a specific theme. For this Play Day, the theme is “Somebody Gotta Feed You All”. Due to the heat, keepers will be providing the animals with fruit, veggie, and meat and fish popsicles. 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.
