 The Zoo’s Hermann’s tortoise, Lilly, visited FOX 6 this morning to remind everyone about the canned food drive on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, January 16! All guests who bring a non-perishable or canned food item in support of the Zoo’s United Way Canned Food Drive will receive half-price admission to the Zoo (limit one discount per guest). Did you know that Hermann’s tortoises have shells that remain soft for the first four to five years of their life?
