For the first time this year, they will also have baby octopuses. Several of the babies will be kept in the Zoo’s nursery, which is located in the Benstead Discovery Center.
Within a week the button quail chicks will make an appearance and Zoo visitors can watch the action in the nursery incubator.
Visitors who have zoo memberships will be able to get a sneak peek from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday and enjoy a hot dog dinner, train rides and other surprises.
Current hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission rates are: members and children two and under: free, children two to 15: $6, seniors: $7, and adults: $8. Racine County residents take $1 off with valid photo I.D. For more information on the Racine Zoo, its programs and events, visit
