Fruit bats are in the “megabat” family. Unlike most megabats, the Egyptian fruit bats uses echo-location for navigating in darkness. They produce sounds with their tongues that resemble a series of clicks to the human ear.
It’s a busy and beautiful week at the zoo! Like many other destinations in our area, this winter’s snow fall has limited the number of guest parking spaces available in our lots. Please be aware when visiting the zoo during Winter Break this week that parking in our lots may be limited. Street parking is available throughout the Tipperary Hill neighborhood and in Burnet Park. Please observe all parking signs and abide by odd/even parking regulations.
