Say Hello to Pint-Sized Critters at the Denver Zoo

July 8, 2015 3:15 pm

Babies are never in short supply at the Denver Zoo. Just in the past few years, the popular city zoo has welcomed Denali, a pint-sized zebra. The zoo's lioness has given birth to Neliah, a lion named for her "strong will and vigorous spirit with a leveled mind," as her name signifies in an African language. Even a baby otter—an Asian small-clawed otter pup, to be exact—has recently joined the ranks, named Jilin for a Chinese province. So if your kids are entertained by all things small and furry, a visit to the Denver Zoo is probably in order.

No matter what type of critter your little ones love, big or small, you'll be able to find it at the large Denver Zoo. Many families enjoy watching the majestic elephants plod slowly around their massive enclosure, whereas others like to explore the special exhibits. The Tropical Discovery exhibit is particularly popular, probably thanks to the presence of its colorful Panamanian golden frog and blue poison arrow frog, its swimming clown fish and lion fish, and the Komodo dragon.
