WINTER CARE

It's cold this week, but the animals at Niabi are warm and dry. Most animals that stay outdoors through the winter have an enclosed area where they can go to avoid snow and wind. The snow leopard loves the cold and he even wraps his tail around his body for more warmth.

Some animals, including the rainbow lorikeets that are native to Australia, take a winter vacation indoors and return outdoors around Memorial Day.

HEALTHY EATING AT THE ZOO

Our animals eat a healthy and well-balanced diet, even though they don't worry about keeping resolutions to loose weight.

Our two Asian elephants share about 25 pounds of produce a day, including bananas, apples, celery, potatoes and carrots. They also eat grains and hay to get fiber in their diets. Can you believe the elephants eat five bales of hay each day!
