Bright Friday

They call the day after Thanksgiving "Black Friday," the unofficial start of the holiday shopping season. This year a more apt name would be "Bright Friday," since that night—November 26—we flip the switch on ZooLights. If you're not too tired from shopping, stop by Lincoln Park Zoo to marvel at the first glowing of more than 1 million lights. ZooLights is free and open to all!

Wild Dog Hammocks?!

Perhaps the most unusual items in the Lincoln Park Zoo Wish List are the hammocks in which the wild dogs snooze. Or maybe the oddest items are the bottles of lotion for goats' hoofs. Perhaps the strangest selection is Bag Balm, which keepers apply to cows' udders. The items in the Wish List are vastly different than the sweaters and socks we give one another each holiday season, and that's a wonderful thing...like jars of mustard to a chimpanzee. Go here to learn more about the Wish List or to make a purchase.
