It's all happening at the Toronto Zoo Thanksgiving weekend

What's new at the Zoo...

Weekly feature
Hudson is all grown up and is taking the plunge into the 'Big Boy' pool!
Just in time for his birthday, and now that he is all grown up (and with Inukshuk's move to 
Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat), Hudson is enjoying making a splash in the 'big boy' pool and 
larger exhibit area of the Tundra Trek's polar bear exhibit.   
Check out Hudson taking the plunge in the Tundra Trek this Thanksgiving Weekend! Don't 
forget to visit the underwater viewing area for an up close view of him swimming about! 
SAVE THE DATE: Join us on Saturday, October 13th from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm as we 
celebrate  Hudson the polar bear cub's first birthday! Party festivities will include a special
