Zoos Fun Facts

The giraffe’s tongue is black to prevent sunburn while eating in the hot sun. Their spots, which are as unique as human fingerprints, are designed for camouflage. They also need less sleep than any other mammal, using the time instead to browse for food.

When visiting the zoo, be on the lookout for the clever ways that the animals have adapted to their surroundings and developed traits that help them to survive.

Most zoos provide free educational resources to make your trip more meaningful; some offer group tours. You can also ask about animal feeding times or other events and plan your trip accordingly.
