Happy #NationalWildlifeDay from all of us at the Minnesota Zoo! When you think of the Zoo, it’s likely that tigers, prairie dogs, and penguins first come to mind. But there are also many species of wildlife that call the Minnesota Zoo home! Check out this blog bit.ly/30L0r6C for tips on seeing wildlife at your next visit. We hope you can find time soon to honor and appreciate the wildlife in your very own backyard! ... See MoreSee Less

Watching all of the wildlife that have visited my yard over the nearly 50 years I have lived in my home has been one of the biggest joys of living here and a prime reason I do not want to sell out and move even though my large yard has become a real challenge for me to care for as I am now 77+. Will be making my first visit to the Zoo this year in mid-September and am looking forward to it. Love the MN Zoo πŸ’•

For the past two years, we have partnered with Passion for Pumpkins to bring you the Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular event. This year, Passion for Pumpkins is pausing the annual event due to travel restrictions nationwide. We know this has become a fall highlight for many members and guests. The Minnesota Zoo greatly appreciates its partnership with Passion for Pumpkins and we will continue to work together to bring Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular back in 2021. πŸŽƒπŸ•― ... See MoreSee Less

Had so much fun last year. Cannot wait to have this event again, it’s truly magical.

JOLS is so awesome! Please bring it back next year!

Hey I grew that pumpkin that the bears smashed...It's on Youtube...Minnesota zoo bears smashing pumpkins:-)

2021 will be spectacular! Can't wait!

Will surely miss it this year 😒 hopefully you can return in fall of 2021 β™‘

Anita Noooooo. I was hoping they would still have it this year, so much fun. πŸŽƒ

Will certainly miss it, but understand!

So fun to watch the bears 🐻 🐻 dig in

I have yet to see it at all! Always sold out!

Darn it. One more thing cancelled *sigh*

Amy Ross we won’t be seeing the pumpkins this year 😒

Is there a reason that they can't still have pumpkins from another source still?

Has Sadie been informed of this? 🐻

I hope the Bears still get to partake

Looking forward for 2021

Wily and adaptable, Minnesota’s most abundant large predator does well where humans have changed the landscape. Here they find a booming population of rodents for food and less competition from other predators that have been pushed out. Coyotes live just about everywhere. In Minnesota, this includes prairies, woods, wetlands, and even suburbs and small towns. Visit the coyotes in person at the #MNZoo, reserve your tickets today: https://bit.ly/2OQ76Hd
It's #InternationalPrimateDay! There are hundreds of primate species in the world. This is a golden lion tamarin, but don't let its name fool you. This primate is on average only 12 - 15 inches tall, and weighs less than two pounds! Golden lion tamarins are endangered, primarily due to habitat loss and fragmentation. More than 30 years of conservation work has helped bring them back from the edge of possible extinction, but still, only 6% of their original habitat remains.
We’ve added some new security measures to our “Staff Only” areas. 🐸 This #TreeFrog can change colors from a mottled grayish green or solid green to a gray or creamy white. Learn more about Minnesota tree frogs in the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources website.

Minnesota is widely known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes. And these lakes, rivers, and streams are host to an abundance of natural wildlife! Minnesota is home to approximately 123 freshwater fish species and 50 species of native freshwater mussels! There’s certainly plenty of diversity in these Minnesota waters to celebrate and protect!
