In Deserts Biome we learned about a snake’s unique sense of smell. Different galleries like “What a Snake Does” explore myths and life of these unique creatures. Strolling through Plains area we spotted baby Baboons who’d rather play than be groomed by their mother. Giraffe’s ate a leisurely meal and tiger kept a close eye on a squirrel. It didn’t take long before squirrel realized his mistake and make a leap for high ground when tiger started to climb tree. Spontaneous moments like these make visiting zoo exciting because you never know what to expect next.
Everywhere we looked we caught a glimpse of preparations for one of our favorite events of holiday season; Kroger Christmas at Zoo. Each evening throughout December beginning at 5pm a million twinkling lights transform zoo into a magical winter wonderland filled with over 150 larger-than-life light sculptures. Inside Kroger Party Pavilion Santa and Mrs. Claus are on hand to greet children and take photos when children are finished having a ball in bounce house. These are just a sampling of exhibits and activities available year around at Indianapolis Zoo.
