    Pardon Our Dust: Hippo Happenings!
    As we begin renovation for a new Underwater Hippo Habitat (scheduled to open summer 2020), our resident hippos, Happy and Patti, will be visible indoors only at this time. Eventually, they will have access to the former Elephant Habitat. Red river hogs, Mango and Radish, will be off exhibit for the duration of the project. We apologize for any inconvenience.
