A New Home for Our Ambassador Animals

The habitat near our king vultures has been transformed into a new experimental space for five animal residents: the skunk trio, Shelly the prehensile-tailed porcupine, and Lorenzo the two-toed sloth. This is part of our new effort to provide our Ambassadors with even more comfortable, natural habitats while also creating more opportunities for you to get to know our Ambassador Animals.
