Watch this YouTube Video I posted. When I go to show who they are watching, One Tiger starts to lower for a jump. I wonder what would have been if there were not people around the fence as the tiger did not seem interested in us! I was REALLY close to calling Park Safety, and probably should have! (I was a guest today). I also had in my mind planned out for any further movement to grab for my phone.

Here is a picture of our Tiger mote.

Also, some signs to remind you of dealing with animals!

Even though the second one is for the free roaming ones, it still applies to the rest! Please follow the rules at the Detroit Zoo and keep it safe for all visitors!!

Please check back soon. I will be blogging about the rest of my visit today over the next week.



Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday’s!!

FiveInchMokeky Asks: Does the Detroit Zoo still have the Zoo Keys?

Hello FiveInchMonkey,

Yes, they still have the zoo Keys. I know they have been upgraded a time or two since I was a kid. I was not a member 3-4 years ago, so un-fortunately I do not know if they are the same ones. They are hibernating till Spring (April when the zoo is operating at 100%).

The animals are still out. Some like the Kangaroo’s are more active now. Kangaroo’s in the warm months only are active in the mornings and evenings and most of it is when the zoo is closed to the public. In the Winter, they move during the warmest part of the day. I have not timed it yet, but around 11a-1p. Last weekend I was more concerned staying warm in the entrance. Not much is closed. (Train, Playground, many food places (Not all), and Feeding the Giraffes).

Thank you FiveInchMonkey for reading my blog.
Eric
