Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo, 1875 Noble Avenue, Bridgeport will host Orange Day on Sunday, Sept. 30.
Orange residents can enjoy a day of fun at the zoo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a reduced admission cost of just $5 with an ID as proof of residence.
This is a great time to visit the zoo. Rochan the Red Panda and his new mate Mari are preparing to move into their new habitat. Shy, the Red Wolf has a new companion named Peanut. And of course, the two tiger cubs are getting bigger and more beautiful every day.
One of the most exciting things to happen this past summer is the birth of a baby Giant Anteater on July 30. The previous one was born a couple of years ago and everyone had a wonderful time watching it grow.
Unfortunately, you probably won’t be able to see this little boy by Orange Day as he’s still a little too young.
So, mark your calendars and cross your fingers for excellent fall weather on Sept. 30. Don’t forget your ID!
