My favorite animals here at the zoo has to be the owls! Although there are so many creatures that make this a difficult decision Oslo, the Eurasian Eagle Owl, and his friends with their big eyes, beautiful feathers and stealthy skills have always impressed me.
Favorite thing about Potter Park Zoo
My favorite thing here at the zoo are all the people that participate in our mission to inspire others to conserve animals in the natural world. The guests, staff, volunteers and educators who come together with great conservation efforts for the animals, the planet and out place in it.
