Breakfast With the Lions

Saturday, July 19


Watching an adult lion take down and devour a gazelle makes for great TV but isn't the most appetizing act; but Zoo Boise has found a way to make watching lions eat--and being able to eat while they do---not only possible but something truly special.

For less than the cost of a couple of venti mochas and a biscotti, Zoo Boise's Breakfast With the Lions series includes a breakfast buffet for the humans, who also get an exclusive view of the king of the jungle getting a "special enrichment" (think "treat"). As if grub and a close-up of the big cats weren't enough, attendees will also have "an exciting encounter" with a Zoo Boise education animal.
