Find Zelf This Holiday Season

December 1 to December 24

Our resident Zoo elf, affectionately known as “Zelf”, is up to some WILD mischief this holiday season. He’s traveling around the Zoo playing hide-and-seek with the animals and we need your help finding him!

Between December 1 and December 24, if you spot Zelf, snap a photo, tag us @TheTorontoZoo, and use hashtag #ZelfOnAShelf for a chance to win a behind-the-scenes tour!
