Hyperception: Illusions for the Senses with Jeanette Andrews - Thursday, February 23
There are countless restaurants dishing out breakfast fare on weekends, but only one place in Chicago where you can munch waffles next to a 400-pound African lion. Enjoy a delicious breakfast buffet inside the landmark Kovler Lion House while Lincoln Park Zoo’s Animal Care staff share fascinating facts about the big cats in their care. You’ll learn about our lion pride and other feline residents, from the Amur leopard (representing the rarest big cat species on earth) to our Eurasian lynx sisters. From enrichment supporting natural behaviors to operant-conditioning training that lets these feline residents participate in their own care, you’ll get a cat’s-eye view of life in the lion house.
After breakfast, you’ll get a chance to view our jaguar Kianto receive a special treat! Our keepers will answer all your questions and explain some of the animal behavior you’ll witness. You’ll see our animals in a way that few people ever get to experience!
Breakfast will be vegetarian-friendly and include a variety of delectable options.
