More than 100 FONZ members attended the Meet a Mammal event on Saturday, May 12, where they saw some of Small Mammal House's most interesting animals up close (like the prehensile-tailed porcupine pictured above!).
A few days earlier, members met the Zoo's new male Asian elephant, Spike, during a special evening where keepers were on hand to discuss his arrival and how they care for the herd of seven elephants.
Both events were exclusive, free opportunities for members to get the VIP treatment while interacting with the people who care for the Zoo's animals.
More members-only events will be offered throughout the year. Check the weekly Zoo Friends e-newsletter for upcoming opportunities! Not a member? Join today.
