Feeding Frenzy

Gobble, munch, devour.
Free with admission. Sept. 2-4

Let the eating begin

Rip, shred, devour

What's your favorite food? For our golden eagles, it's meatballs. For our wolves, it's steak. And for our barn owl, it's mice. Watch our animals eat favorite foods and catch keeper talks all weekend long.

Natural prey

Why do we do this? It's great for animal health to eat foods they'd come across naturally in the wild, and to use their claws, teeth and muscles to devour. Plus, it's cool to watch.

Not just carcasses

But it's not just about carcasses. Our keepers get creative in presenting treats and enrichments for our animals to get them curious and encourage natural behaviors - like finding food and using their brains.
Don't worry - we won't make you solve a puzzle before you eat your lunch, though.
