Christmas is for the Lions
If you give a mouse a cookie, he's going to ask for a glass of milk. But if you give an orangutan a box of holiday goodies, he is most likely going to open it, play with and/or eat it and cause a highly unified chorus of "aaawwww." Our friends at the BioPark Zoo have certainly not forgotten that primates, big cats and elephants all deserve their fair share of presents for the holidays. Saturday is your perfect chance to see animal pals receive toys, chains, tubes and treats from their zookeeper friends. Zoo staff will be available throughout the morning to answer questions and explain how this special enrichment helps keep the animals active, alert and curious. Plus, it's going to be stinkin' adorable. (Emily Aragon)
