Egg-citing Animal Enrichment

Join us as our animals participate in their very own Animal Egg Hunt! Our elephants, chimpanzees, meerkats, and even the colony of bats in Natural Encounters are receiving their own egg-themed enrichment throughout the day. Visit them at their habitats in the Houston Zoo and see them hunt, eat, and play with eggs of all sizes!
