Showin’ the love at Woodland Park Zoo

by | Feb 10, 2010

Even lemurs and sloths like their Valentine’s Day treats, so check out Woodland Park Zoo’s special V-Day celebration on Saturday. Various animals will get special heart-shaped treats from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. Treats include heart-shaped ice pops, herbal bouquets and heart-shaped steaks.

The special treats are part of the zoo’s ongoing enrichment program to help enrich the lives of the animals by promoting natural animal behavior, such as foraging, playing and exploring, keeping animals mentally and physically stimulated and engaging zoo visitors.
