End of the Summer

As the summer is starting to wind down, some animals are just getting started. Just this morning Jaya, the baby orangutan, was climbing all over the exhibit. He was swinging on all of the ropes and climbing around just like the big orangutans. The other orangutan watched from the ground as Jaya explored new heights.

The baby flamingo also has grown a lot and has started exploring. The flamingo still has grey fluffy feathers but now is able to wonder around the bird yard.

During your visit, you can also view a miniature Union Pacific train. The train is located by the bird yard and will be on display through out the week. September 7th is the last day Blooming Butterflies will be open to the public but if you miss it this summer the exhibit will be opening again next summer. Stop by Como Park Zoo and Conservatory for one last adventure this summer.
