The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo held its annual Ice Day on Thursday.
Guests to the zoo learned how animals stay cool during the summer months, including why pigs roll in mud, dogs pant, and kangaroos lick themselves. Guests watched zoo animals enjoy icy treats throughout the day and participated in a variety of educational stations to learn more about how animals keep cool.
Stations around the zoo allowed guests to make an ice treat for an animal like a zookeeper, experience how penguins keep warm on icy days, do the popular Ice Pop Drop and more.
The Ice Day event was free with paid admission to the zoo.
