Who Doesn't Love a New Ball?

It’s round, it rolls and it’s non-stop fun!  Big cats love to play with boomer balls, and keepers love the enrichment they provide.

Sold out!

 

 
 

Swine Dancing

The male and female red river hog pair at Regenstein African Journey use their strong teeth to dig for roots. Give them some above-ground, playful enrichment to root for: weighted, plastic cylinders called Weebles they can bump around with their snouts.

Sold out!

 

 
 

A Bone to Pick

Meaty bones usually aren’t on the picnic menu, but for our big cats they’re essential! Lions and leopards can gnaw on one all afternoon. Pick up a perfect snack for the cats with a meaty bone today.

That's Quite an Ice Cube!

One Ton of Yum

House Cleaning

The harbor seals won’t clean house, but our zookeepers do. Lend a hand by providing them with a spa vacuum for the Kovler Sea Lion Pool.

Sold out!

 

 
 

Puzzle-Roo

Red kangaroos are clever creatures, so zookeepers give them a food ball with holes in it to exercise their brain. Jump at this opportunity today—buy a ball!

Sold out!

 

 
 

Making Mud Angels

Beauty treatments are in order for the zoo’s four rhinos. Give them top soil for mud wallows (mud protects their skin from the sun and biting insects) and nail-trimming supplies. A pedicure is just what first-time mom Kapuki deserves after a day of minding her 700-pound baby boy, King.

Sold out!
