Thanksgivings Past

#ThrowbackThursday Here is a flashback to Thanksgivings past. Take a look at our penguins, takin, Coquerel’s sifakas, monkeys and lemurs enjoying Thanksgiving themed enrichment from their keepers. 

Visiting the Zoo during Thanksgiving weekend is a tradition for many St. Louis families and out-of-town visitors. The Zoo will be open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day, and Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Free, timed-ticket reservations are required. Visit
