  • Warm and Fuzzies Snooze

    The Saint Louis Zoo is home to some incredible endotherms (or “warm-blooded” animals)! Some endotherms have feathers, while others have fur, but all of them are able to control their own body temperatures. This means that they can survive in some pretty extreme habitats. Come discover the birds and mammals that live at the Zoo, and how being warm and fuzzy helps them to survive!

    Overnight evening activities will include rotations through exciting activities, an evening snack, and a night hike around Zoo grounds. The morning portion of the overnight adventure includes a continental breakfast, a morning stroll around Zoo grounds to see the animals wake up, a souvenir Zoo patch and glow-in-the-dark overnight cup!

    Limited to 40 participants

    Fee: $50 per participant
