April 2022 ZooAmerica Pass Holder Newsletter

Read on for Zoo News This Month

Spring is in full swing at ZooAmerica! It's been a busy, but exciting start to the season. 

We welcomed a  new bull elk named John Henry to our ZooAmerica family on March 19. He is spending his first 30 days in the back section of the habitat. Our two female cows, Hannah and Becky, will remain in the front section during this time period. 

Three weeks ago, some of our team members traveled to another AZA accredited zoo, Clyde Peeling's Reptiland, to exchange rattlesnakes. We had a female sidewinder that could no longer cohabitate with our male. Reptiland had an extra western diamondback rattlesnake and the trade was made!

We encourage you to follow us on Facebook for updates on these new arrivals.
