Snow Days at the Zoo brings out families in the heat of summer.
It was not goggling the new baby elephant or feeding of the giraffes, though plenty did marvel at those creatures as well. In fact, it wasn’t any animal that drew the children on a July day with a heat index of 110 degrees. It was snow.
Some stayed in their bathing suits and sunhats while other families bundled up their litters in snow boots and gloves to plow through the 4-inches of snow during the zoo’s two-day summertime tradition.
