GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – John Ball Zoo is open for exploration and fun opportunities for children and the young at heart. Packed with Spring Break fun this week, Maranda headed over to check it out. One exhibit that’s fun to see is the reptiles. In the video above, Maranda had the chance to feed a garter snake and an Argentine Tegu… take a look!
The fun continued at the otter exhibit! Look how cute these little ones are! Learn more about otter training, here.
Marana learned a lot about the Tigers at John Ball Zoo. The species of tigers are Amur Tigers, which are from northern regions. That means they love Michigan’s winter climate. Amur tigers are highly endangered, with only about 400 adults living in the wild. The zoo hopes the exhibit will raise awareness about tigers and conservation efforts to protect them from extinction.
