Terry and Tanzie loving the pumpkins!

We are gearing up for our Zoo Boo days in October.  We are looking for pumpkin and cornstalk donations. The primates love eating and playing with pumpkins and cornstalks.  We have a lot of animals that enjoy the pumpkins and cornstalks this time of year so we are looking for at least 50 – 100 pumpkins…all sizes from really small for the small monkeys to really big for the rhinos! As zookeepers, we are always looking for exciting enrichment activities and ideas for the animasl but always keep safety in mind.  Last year,  for some of our carnivores, we placed meat inside the pumpkins…they loved it!  Thank you in advance and we hope to see you this year during Zoo Boo!

    Today was our first visit to Southwick Zoo … it was wonderful! It was the cheetahs that drew us to the park, but now that we’ve visited, once, we will be regulars. Amazing!
