Melinda Voss and Kate Olukalns from the Cincinnati Zoo show off a few of their unique friends. Meet Rose, the screaming hairy armadillo, Caroline the prehensile tail porcupine, and Ollie the white throated monitor (a cousin to the Komodo Dragon!!).
They are touring the region to spread the word about their soon to be opened exhibit called Cat Canyon, which will allow visitors to come face to face with the Zoo's big cats!
Cat Canyon opens on June 30th. The area opened originally in 1934 as Tiger Grotto, but major renovations will allow visitors to see the Zoo's big cats closer than ever before. One of the highlights will feature a new viewing area offering an opportunity to stand eye-to-eye with Malayan tigers, with just an inch of glass in between.
In addition to Malayan tigers, Cat Canyon will also be home to white tigers and snow leopards in immersive exhibits that showcase the majesty and grace of these amazing cats. With two new viewing areas overlooking three new outdoor exhibits, waterfalls, new rock work, a wooden bridge, eye-to-eye viewing panes and lush play spaces for the animals, this exhibit promises to be exciting for young and old alike.
The Cincinnati Zoo opens daily at 9 a.m. Admission prices are $15/adults, $10/children (2-12) and children under two are FREE. Parking is $8. For more information, visit www.cincinnatizoo.org.
