Cats and Cocoa

Date: January 30, 2021

Start Time: 10:00 am
End Time: 12:00 pm

Our Asian Highlands cats are the most active in the winter! Kick off the New Year with a visit to the Zoo during our Cats and Cocoa event!

This year the event will look a little different. However, the leopards, tigers, lions and snow leopards will still be showing off their thick winter coats.

On Saturday, January 30th, come to the Zoo and play our ‘Big Cat Scavenger Hunt’ and redeem your answers at any walk up concession window for a cup of FREE hot chocolate (while supplies last). Tune into our YouTube channel for special keeper talks, enrichment and demonstrations about our big cats. This event focuses on Utah’s Hogle Zoo’s mission of helping animals in the wild.  Learn fun facts about the big cats, conservation and our support of the Niassa Carnivore Project and Snow Leopard Trust.

  • Snow Leopards use their long tails to protect their faces from wind and cold.
  • A tiger’s stripes are like finger prints: No two are exactly alike.
  • Hogle Zoo has numerous conservation partners working to save these beautiful species in the wild including Snow Leopard Trust.
