Happy Thanksgiving from the Polar Bears

Polar Bears Buzz and Neil enjoyed a post-Thanksgiving nap after the zoo keepers fed them their diet and a few Thanksgiving treats this Turkey day.

We are thankful to all the zoo visitors who came out to see us today. Happy Thanksgiving from the Zoo keepers and animals at Como Zoo.

Movember for the male keepers

For the second year in a row, many of the male zoo keepers of Como Zoo are growing mustaches to help celebrate Movember. By sporting these upper lip warmers, the Zoo keepers join a worldwide group of men dedicated to raising awareness of prostate cancer and other male cancers. Joining them in their mustached endeavours are the Emperor Tamarins. Emperor tamarins were named after German Emperor Wilhelm II, due to their long, droopy white mustaches. Zoo staff will have to work hard to rival the mustaches of the tamarins.
