KEEPING THE ZOO HEALTHY: VETERINARIAN CARE at JOHN BALL ZOO

Our goal at John Ball Zoo is to provide the best care possible for all of over 1,200 animals.  This care relies on the hard work of many people.  Our keepers are at the center of that care.  They provide nutritious meals, clean exhibits, and many forms of training and enrichment.  They are also an extremely important part of the veterinary medical care for the animals here at the zoo.

 

HOW DID YOU EVEN NOTICE THAT??

“How did you even notice that?”   Recently I  had two people ask me that same question.  I was telling them about an awesome pseudoscorpion I found crawling around the Hoofstock Building at the zoo.
“It was huge,” I was telling them.  “Probably about the size of a sesame seed.”
