Our Trip to the Zoo!

Our trip the Red River Zoo

As our semester draws to a close, our minds are flooded with thoughts of papers, tests, and final projects. The three of us decided what better way to take a break and clear our heads for an hour or two by taking a stroll through the Red River Zoo!


Our friends, the wolves, greeted us with a friendly howl and ran up to the fence to say hello. We noticed how thick their coats were as they prepare for another North Dakota Winter.




The goats were especially happy to see us as they stood up against their fence to get our attention. One of them even gave us a smile… it was unexpected, but had us laughing.


Baby Taji (who’s not so little anymore), was out climbing trees with his parents, but not feeling very photogenic. He had other things on his mind instead of posing for a picture, like following his mom around.


We ended our relaxing walk through the zoo with a send-off from the peacock as he stood on top of a fence and watched us leave. Farewell friends!


If you need a brief get-a-way from the stress of finals, we recommend you take a trip to the Red River Zoo too!

Jaws, Paws, and Santa Claus! (Review in Pictures)

Did anyone make it to the Christmas event, Jaws, Paws and Santa Clause? It was a hit! Kids and adults got to chill with Santa, take family photos, ride the carousel, and eat sandwiches from Erbert and Gerbert’s. Activities and arts and crafts filled the wolf cabin as the junior zoo keepers were there to take out the smaller education animals, like the snakes and rabbits. After the fun was over in the carousel pavilion, people gathered around the wolf cabin to watch Christmas-themed animal enrichment. Zoo visitors watched with awe as the wolves tore into gifts of meat. If you are disappointed that you missed out, don’t worry! The final Christmas event Jaws, Paws and Santa Clause 2012 will be this Saturday! Order tickets ahead online.

Gift-Giving Ideas the Whole Family will Love

Gift-Giving Ideas the Whole Family will Love

Are you looking for a unique Christmas gift for the entire family that won’t end up in the back of a closet or shoved under a bed? You might want to consider a membership to the Red River Zoo. If you purchase a membership as a gift, it will be good for an entire year. Members receive 10% off on all gift shop items, so parents would love this additional feature. Plus, a bonus that many people forget about, is that members from the Red River Zoo can get in free or half-off at more then 150 zoos around the country! This gift would pay for itself after 2 visits to the zoo and it is much better than a boring fruit basket!

Individual: One Individual would get in for free for the next year. Great for a collage student who loves animals.

Family: Two adults and all their children who live with them that are under the age of 18.
Grandparent: Two adults and all their grandkids under the age of 18.
Patron: Same as the Family/Grandparent membership but all members receive free carousel rides ($2 per each ride value). Four day passes are also included.

*Day passes are also available for purchase.
