Seasonal Changes and Animals

MO Shedding

Before summer arrives most people change out the items in their closet in preparation for warmer weather. In the fall a similar change happens as people get sweaters and coats ready for the cold. Animals don’t have closets but some do a good job of preparing for the coming seasons through changing their coats!

One thing you might notice when you visit a park like ours is that animals with coats sometimes appear to be losing their fur! You may also notice antlers shedding or looking ragged. This is because as the seasons change, so do their coats! Antlers are shed and grow back every year as well! Try spotting these changes the next time your visit us or any other animal park!
