Venture Into the Flying Fox Camp – The large flying fox and the island flying fox are two of the largest bat species in the world. These giant fruit-eating bats have a wing span up to five feet wide and roost in large groups know as "camps." Visit the flying foxes in their innovative new exhibit in the El Pomar Foundation Village Hall during your next visit to Toyota Elephant Passage. Watch a video of the flying foxes.

Correction – In last week's email bulletin, we identified the Sarus crane as the world's tallest bird. While the Sarus crane is the world's tallest crane, it is not the world's tallest bird! The Sarus crane can grow up to six-feet tall, but the ostrich can reach a whopping nine feet! We offer our sincere apologies to the ostriches and ornithologists who noticed our mistake.
Denver Zoo Closes Early on June 21 – Denver Zoo will close at noon on June 21 for preparations for Do At The Zoo. If you plan on visiting the zoo that day, please excuse our mess as we get set up for our big night!
