Animal Love

You can feel the love
(and so can our animals.)
Feel the love as Zoo animals experience special Valentine-themed treats and enrichments. Why enrichments? They encourage our animals' natural behaviors, from smelling prey to breaking up ice. They're also fun for humans to watch!
Watermelon Valentine
Who's yours?
Meet our keepers and find out just how they care for our animals. Discover why we give barrels to polar bears and watermelons to elephants.
Zoo Couples
Hanging out or paired for life.
We have some cute animal couples here at the Zoo! Some are breeding pairs, some are longtime companions, and others just enjoy hanging out. Read the blog story to find out who's who.
