Zoo Lights! The only way to see penguins in Alaska. Why? Penguins live in the Southern hemisphere, not the Northern hemisphere.

Santa’s Reindeer Tails is a great way for classes near and far to take a virtual field trip to the Alaska Zoo to discover the similarities and differences between Santa’s reindeer, and the wild caribou of Alaska. Reserve your date and time soon! Visit www.alaskazoo.org for more information.

Did you know that Inupiak-speaking Eskimos call the muskox, omingmak, meaning “animal with skin like a beard,” referencing the long hairs nearly touch the ground?

The flying squirrels were super excited to get camel and yak hair as enrichment today! They enjoy using the fur as bedding to snuggle and sleep in.
