Zookeepers Help Animals Prepare for Colder Months Ahead

In This Week's Animal Answers, Lead Zookeeper Emily Perala Talks Winter Preparation for the Animals

DULUTH, Minn. – Colder temperatures are sinking in across much of the Northland.

As humans begin bundling up, it’s also time for animals to do the same. While many of them grow thicker coats of fur, some aren’t able to adapt as quickly as others.

Zookeepers at the Lake Superior Zoo tell FOX 21’s Brett Scott they’re working to ensure all animals remain healthy and comfortable as winter sets in.

Furnaces are checked over and heated rocks are being dusted off before frost hits the Zoo.

The Zoo will host Boo at the Zoo on Saturday October 14 and Saturday October 21.

Tickets are on sale now at any local Super One Foods locations. Tickets will be discounted $1 dollar if purchased ahead of time.
