Are you celebrating Valentine’s Day tomorrow? The animals at Nashville Zoo will be enjoying the day with special enrichment items!

“Valentine’s Day is a chance for our animals to receive new items and toys for enrichment, and for our keepers to have a little fun, ” said Jac Menish, curator of behavioral husbandry at Nashville Zoo. “Cardboard in the shape of candy kisses, purple and red paper mache balls, and pink paper chains are just a few of the sweet items the animals will be enjoying during the day.”
