May means Zoo Babies Time at the Cincinnati Zoo. And this year the zoo welcomes LOTS of new cuties to the family. “Apparently there was a lot of monkey business going on during the pandemic,” said Thane Maynard, director of the Cincinnati Zoo, in a press release. “There are babies everywhere in the zoo. Reptiles, mammals, insects and many birds! “
Celebrating its 36th annual event this spring, the zoo invites you to meet new friends like the new baby wallaby recently named Zip, zoo’s new little blue penguins Mars and Rover, and Ori the Verreaux’s eagle owl soon to be a zoo ambassador.
The event starts on May 1st and lasts until May 31st. Zoo babies are included in your admission fee. Buy your tickets online at cincinnatizoo.org.
