Throughout the zoo, a variety of animals will receive holiday gifts.  Some of the animals will enjoy playing with and tearing apart boxes.  Others will appreciate treats hidden inside the packages.  In both cases, zoo visitors will enjoy watching the animals as they open their gifts.

Presenting the animals with unusual items is part of the zoo's enrichment program, designed to encourage the animals to use their natural behaviors found in the wild and enhance overall well-being.
