Need a winter escape?

Join us for the 6th annual Warm Up in the Wild party. This adults-only tropical event features a unique experience with zookeepers exploring the exotic and intimate rituals of the furry, feathered and scaly residents of the Tropics Trail. Play beach games in a giant sandbox, grab a cocktail, and enjoy the Zoo after hours.

How often will female tree kangaroos tolerate the advances of a male?
How does a male painted turtle get the attention of his beloved?
Is loud mating bad for survival in the wild?

Get your animal questions answered by zookeepers at Warm Up in the Wild!

Proceeds from this event support the Minnesota Zoo’s efforts to connect people, animals, and the natural world to save wildlife.
