Officials with the Tulsa Zoo were on hand Wednesday morning to preview a newly renovated complex featuring naked mole rats and albino alligators.
On Saturday, the former Robert J. LaFortune North American Living Museum will be known as the Robert J. LaFortune WildLIFE Trek.
"We are thrilled to reopen this four building complex featuring a variety of animals from grizzly bears to naked mole rats to albino alligators," said Terrie Correll, CEO of Tulsa Zoo Management, Inc. "This newly renovated complex will focus on animals from around the world and their unique adaptations to life in the cold, desert, forest and water."
According to a release from the zoo, the Robert J. LaFortune WildLIFE Trek features an interactive keeper chat area and training wall at the grizzly bear exhibit as well as a naturalistic habitat featuring a two story waterfall and wading pond for the bears.
Guests will find new features such as these throughout the complex, but they will also find many old favorites, such as the zoo's original cave exhibit! With many exciting features, old and new, this complex will thrill all who decide to take a trek through the wild this spring!
