Potawatomi Zoo opens for business


One of Michiana's favorite landmarks has opened for a new year.  The Potawatomi Zoo opened their gates to the public at 10:00am on Friday.  New for this year is an expanded Red Panda exhibit that will open in April.

Zoo officials say that parents should bring their kids for the fun and education.  "We have signage throughout the zoo where they can learn about the different animals on what they eat and where they come from and if they're endangered," says Marcy Dean, the Executive Director of the Potawatomi Zoo.

Dean also said that guests will notice some small changes in customer service that should make the experience better.
