LA Zoo Reindeer Romp where you can see live reindeer! This is included in the price. They have about five of them and you will find each of their names at the bottom of the gates. There are docents there talking about them. It was incredible to learn that both male and female reindeer have antlers.
In the same area your kids can decorate their own reindeer hats. All the tables are in the shade filled with crayons.
Once your kids are done decorating you can compare their antlers from the ones on display. They have certain hours were docents will have talks.
Throughout the park their are a lot of photo-ops. Santa is their during weekends for pictures. You can't take one with your personal phone, but you will get a ticket and if you want you can look it up online later. The Santa was really attentive and took his time with my son.
On certain days the animals get gifts! You will enjoy watching the animals opening up the gifts. If you have a membership it is worth putting on your calendar the dates and which animals you want to see. This was a favorite with everyone!
And of course the whole zoo is fun for everyone to enjoy the rest of the day. The Reindeer Romp is from now through January 8th. You don't want to miss this!
