An Animal's Christmas

One of the perks of being an uncle is seeing a child's face as they tear open a present on Christmas, seeing their eyes light up, their smile ignite at the sight of that pair of shoes (my nephew's into Jordan's). But what if you don't have kids, or nephews, or friends with kids or nephews? And what if you're curious to see how animals (if you consider humans to be quite boring) react to receiving Christmas presents. Well, the ABQ Biopark Zoo (903 10th Street SW) has got you covered. Head to their Holiday Enrichment event tomorrow at 9:30am to see some animals opening their Christmas presents. The keepers at the zoo will provide primates, cats and elephants with yuletide trinkets ranging from paper chains to decorated tubes to edible goodies and boxes wrapped in fine fashion. But the best part of this whole shebang is seeing how the animals react. Will the primates jump up and down? Will the cats stare at the presents with suspicion before they try to claim the box as their new home? Head to the enriching festivities and find out. And it's included with regular admission to the zoo, so there's more bang for your buck. ABQ BioPark Zoo • Sat Dec 21 • 9:30-11:30am • Included with admission • View on Alibi calendar
