Late April in Wisconsin is when we switch from winter coats to spring jackets. Many animals shed their natural winter coats in spring, such as Bactrian camels, Dall sheep, and moose. Comparing animal coats is the theme this year at Zootastic, a Zoological Society family fundraising event filled with animals, food, and fun.
Sunset is at 7:46 p.m. So there's plenty of light for guests to walk to the giraffe exhibit and compare Rahna's light-colored coat to Marlee's much darker spotted coat. Or visit the big cats and compare snow leopard spots to jaguar spots. Get insider facts from Zoo staff and volunteers. Kids can create animal-themed crafts. Everyone can indulge in cheesy Palermo's® Pizza and an ice cream sundae from the make-your-own sundae bar. Dance past dusk to a kid-friendly DJ. Commemorate the night with a collectible family photo. All guests under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
