Even scavengers that hiss at your dog and root through your trash deserve to be loved. Just watch out for those 52 pointy teeth (that's more than any other land mammal!).
Do you ever get strange looks from people at social events when you break out some of your favorite animal facts? Have you reached capacity for animals residing in your home?
Thanksgiving weekend is the opening weekend of Potter Park Zoo’s annual Wonderland of Lights.
As a child in the 1980s I was very much enamored with tigers. For many years I was a lucky member of the National Geographic Society’s video club.
The zoo has just enjoyed yet another May, full of school groups on field trips and visitors who are glad to finally get out and enjoy the weather.
Snow Leopards have powerful legs and are tremendous leapers, able to jump as far as 50 feet!
"It's a great place for friends and family and students to go and enjoy a day outdoors while learning and having fun."
