The John Ball Zoo is continuing to follow all CDC and State health guidelines and will require all visitors over the age of 5 to wear a mask, including outdoor spaces. Some of this year’s highlights include new zoo babies. Rose, Ruby, and Willow are triplet red panda cubs born back in June 2020. You can check in to see how they are doing, and how much they’ve grown. Another baby born this year is Yoshi, a Canada lynx born in May.
