Originally, we planned on making this post animal-themed with just the events Utah's Hogle Zoo and the Utah Museum of Fine Arts. But there was absolutely no way we could leave out this first one.

Woo at the Zoo

Utah Hogle Zoo is offering some post-Valentine's fun on Saturday. The zoo's animals will be given enrichment in the form of heart shaped treats—including blood-scicles for the big cats. Ewww. 

But really, the treats help stimulate the animals' natural instincts and will liven them up for guests at each enclosure. 

The enrichment will be presented to the apes at 10 a.m. and big cats at 10:30 a.m.

Saturday, Feb. 18, 10 a.m to 2 p.m.
