Animals at Lake Superior Zoo Prepare For Winter Cold
Lake Superior Zoo Animals Stay Warm in the Cold
Many animals are brought indoors to heated homes during the frigid months, others who may not be completely adapted to the cold will get shelters and beds.
Also, some cages provide heat with their own landscaping.
“There’s certain features of some of the exhibits that also help like heated rocks that they can lay on so that they can get some of that warmth also from their environment,” said Macie Sykes, director of animal management.
The very first step, to making sure animals are safe and sound at the zoo though is choosing animals that they know will do well in the Minnesota climate.
