Zooperheros Unite at Utah’s Hogle Zoo

SALT LAKE CITY (Feb. 23) – Comic book writers may have had some special animals in mind when they came up with ideas for their superhero’s powers, and Utah’s Hogle Zoo is spreading the word that those superpowers might be close to reality as it hosts its first annual Zooperhero Day Saturday, Feb. 26 from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.

On Zooperhero Day children are encouraged to dress as their favorite superhero to get $1 off their admission for the day. Once inside the Zoo, animal keepers will be giving guests an up close look at animals that possess superpowers like flying, night vision, incredible running speed, invincible body armor, and more. Animals featured during the superpower presentations include Amur Tigers, Bats, Spider Monkeys, Elephants and Apes, to name a few.

Adding to the excitement will be Night Flight Comics, which will be in the gift shop alcove from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. handing out free comics, coloring books and one-of-a-kind drawings from real-life comic book artist Bill Galvan.

Join Utah’s Hogle Zoo this Saturday for the Zooperhero fun, and see which of our animals has your favorite superpower!
