Animal Egg Hunt Returns to the Zoo

Posted Mar 21st, 2012 by Andi Norman  Category: Arts & Entertainment,


Egg hunts are one of the fun rituals of spring. At the Toledo Zoo, this tradition comes with a Zoo twist: the Animal Egg Hunt on Friday, April 6. Animals all across the Zoo track down papier-mâché eggs, hard-boiled eggs and other treats hidden in their habitats. The day features story times and crafts in Nature’s Neighborhood, too.

The Animal Egg Hunt is more than just fun for visitors — it’s a great form of enrichment for the animals. Through enrichment, we stimulate the animals’ senses and encourage natural behaviors. It’s a key component of their overall well-being.
