Crazy for Cats Breakfast

Crazy for Cats Breakfast

Saturday, March 23

Crazy for Cats Breakfast featured a charming breakfast buffet from Tigerlily Catering inside the Kovler Lion House and a talk by Curator of Mammals Mark Kamhout. Kamhout discussed the different species residing in the historic animal house and how the zoo cares for the animals individually. Guests were even welcomed by Amur tiger Molly, who roared loudly several times, and introduced to Sahar, a male African lion who arrived at the zoo in 2012. Thanks to all who attended!
