OKC Zoo map


Pumpkin season has arrived at the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden and that means it’s time for Chomp and Stomp 2018! Caretakers have busily been preparing fun and tasty pumpkin treats for the animals. Some prefer sliced, others want diced and some like the whole pumpkin. These culinary creations are presented as part of the Zoo’s ongoing animal enrichment program, designed to stimulate their senses and encourage natural behaviors. OKC Zoo is hosting Chomp and Stomp, its annual Halloween animal enrichment event, on Friday, October 19, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Animal caretakers will prepare enriching and edible pumpkin creations for some of the Zoo’s animals. These activities are free with Zoo admission. The Chomp and Stomp 2018 schedule is as follows:

10 a.m. – Tigers (Cat Forest)
