Enjoy a fun-filled day at the Zoo meeting present and prehistoric animals, on Father’s Day presented by Prairie Farms Dairy, Sunday, June 16. All dads receive free admission, no coupon necessary.

Red panda
Red panda, Dash

Red panda dad, Dash, is the father to female cub Dr. Lily Parkinson, the first red panda cub born here at the Zoo. Dr. Lily, was born June 6 last year, to mother, Dr. Erin Curry. Dash was an attentive father to Dr. Lily during her time here, and zookeepers said they often saw her chasing him around the exhibit.

Give Dad a unique experience, and be sure to visit the Zoo’s special exhibit, Brick Dinos, sponsored by Sendik’s Food Markets.

Dad will have the chance to become a LEGO® paleontologist while viewing LEGO recreations of fossils, dinosaur skeletons and paleontologist digs. He will even come face-to-face with the 13-foot-long Masiokasaurus, a meat-eating dinosaur with razor-sharp teeth. The dinosaur exhibit is just $3 after regular Zoo admission.

Dad is sure to have a “turtley” fun day at the Zoo. The Zoo is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Father’s Day, presented by Prairie Farms Dairy. For more information, contact the Zoo at 414.256.5466.
