OKC Zoo map


With help from some very special Zoo elves (aka animal caretakers), Santa is making wild wishes come true for the animals at the Zoo’s Sanctuary Asia habitat. Watch as the cassowary, Komodo dragons, red pandas, tanuki, rhinos and elephants receive approved, gifts and treats prepared by their caretakers on Friday, December 13, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. These festive items are created as part of the Zoo’s ongoing animal enrichment program, designed to encourage natural behaviors and provide stimulating activities and environments for the animals. After Santa makes his deliveries, he will be available in the Lotus Pavilion for photos so bring your cameras and your smiles! Free hot chocolate courtesy of Salt & Surrey Catering and cookies will also be served.
