Drop in for early bites

Zoo break­fast some­thing to sink your teeth into

Sunday Herald Sun - - News -

MELBOURNE Zoo’s keep­ers are urg­ing vis­i­tors to join them for break­fast this month and get a glimpse of what hap­pens be­hind the scenes.

Un­til Jan­uary 29, the zoo will open at the ear­lier time of 8am, giv­ing pa­trons the chance to meet keep­ers to see what they do to get the zoo ready.

It’s also a chance to see the an­i­mals en­joy­ing their quiet start to the day be­fore the crowds ar­rive. The lemurs, urs, pictured with keeper Harna Bur­ton, love to bask in the sun. Pen­guins are fed from­fro 8.30am and red pan­das are given an

early feed of their favourite bam­boo, while the cof­fee kiosk is also open early.
