Listen to the Pet Show podcast!
The best part for us people: $4 admission and an opening time of 7:30 a.m. to beat the heat.
The best part for the animals: food.
Keepers are creating icy treats for the animals to help them stay cool in this record heat.
Check out this picture taken by Oklahoman photographer Paul Southerland! That jaguar is eating a blood – yes, blood – popsicle.
Other animals scheduled to enjoy the fun this week are chimps, hippos and birds. The big culmination will be the grizzley bear feeding at 8:45 a.m. Saturday.
But you don’t have to have a grizzly bear to make a fun summer treat. Here’s a recipe for making a fun snack for your own pet:
32 oz yogurt
2 mashed bananas
1/4 c peanut butter
2 T honey (optional)
Mix and freeze in an ice tray. That’s it!
