Toronto Zoo Weekly Feature - Wednesday, 2013-10-23


Saturday, October 26th

6:30 pm to 8:30 pm

Join us for a truly unique, and chilling, Halloween presentation where we explore the mystery and symbolism of death. The evening includes a special talk about the weird and wild ways that animals and plants associate with death. We will also dispel myths on some of the world's deadliest animals and plants, get to the bottom of how some animals can actually use death to their advantage, and take you (if you dare) on a tour of our Wildlife Health Centre.

COST (per adult 18+ years of age):
$15 Zoo Member, $17 Non-Member
