December 27th-29th: Shells, Scales, and Scoots!
From large tortoises to tiny frogs, this week will be spent getting to know the reptiles and amphibians here at the zoo! We will learn what makes those animals unique as well as the awesome adaptations that help them survive! We will even look at some animal relatives, such as scaly footed birds! Come slither, jump, and crawl your way through the zoo with us!

January 3rd-5th: Super Senses
Humans have 5 senses but do animals? Join us this week to learn about how animals experience the world, some in very super ways!
