How animals spend the 4th


I will be celebrating the 4th of July this weekend with lots of barbecues while enjoying the summer weather. But I wonder what our animal friends will be doing this weekend…

If last year is any indication, we know the animals at the Oregon Zoo will be having a lot of fun! To see just how much, watch this video clip.

This year, the animals at the Georgia Aquarium have a very special way of saying “Happy 4th of July”! You can watch here.

I want to wish you all a very Happy 4th of July as well!

    What about unenrichment activities? My golden retriever is afraid of thunder and lightening so we try to get him as far away from the fireworks festivities as possible.
