Friendsgiving at Franklin Park Zoo
Whether it’s finding food, protecting one another, or simply a form of housing, many of the animals that live at Franklin Park Zoo depend on their unique family dynamics to survive. Did you know Prairie dogs have unique “barks” to warn their colony from different predators, or that ring-tailed lemurs keep their tails raised like flags to keep group members together when traveling? Discover more about these special relationships as we celebrate Friendsgiving at the Zoo on Saturday, November 17. Watch as some of the animals receive festive enrichment, and learn more about these unique bonds at the education station. There will also be zookeeper chats and a fun craft to take home.
