Our friends at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo stopped by today to let us know what's happening at the zoo this summer!

The zoo has a great list of upcoming events such as weekend animal demonstrations, where you can meet animals like Araña, a baby two-toed sloth who made her television debut on Bridge Street.

The 'In the Wings' bird show will also be running throughout the summer, as will the 'Elephant Encounter' program and other various zookeeper talks that are open to the public.

Finally, the public has a chance to name another of the zoo's new penguin chicks! After receiving dozens of community submissions to name the female penguin, the choices were narrowed down.

Penguin Naming Contest Top 5:
  • Dahlia
  • Filomena
  • Francesca
  • Graciela
  • Solana
