Right now, things are busy all over the zoo as we have jumped into the school group and HersheyPark season. Even with tours and extra people in the zoo, there’s still a lot going on behind the scenes. Two of our keepers, Tal and Tim, are about to make a trip to pick up 4 snowy owls to bring back to our zoo. They will not be on exhibit right away because they will first go into quarantine to be sure they are healthy.
We are also waiting for two species that will be brand new to the zoo. Mexican Beaded Lizards and Black-Footed Ferrets! Right now, there is an exhibit undergoing construction in the Great Southwest to prepare for the highly endangered ferrets. The beaded lizards will also be in the Great Southwest building.
There will be all kinds of excitement in the next 1-3 months with new animals. I’ll keep you posted on when everything is ready to come out to exhibit!
