Well whaaddaya know, our very own Cajun Groundhog T-Boy nutria came out this week and said “NO MORE WINTER”! We are overjoyed and excited because he also told us he was celebrating his recent marriage to Kim Kardashian right here in New Orleans. This makes great news for us at Audubon Nature Institute. Spring will be coming soon and that means great weather.  And we’ve got lots for you to get out and do this season.  At Audubon Zoo in our Louisiana Swamp Exhibit you may even get a look at T-Boy and his new bride. They are still blushing with love. Right next to there you can check out the giraffes. They love roaming through the African Safari exhibit. Your spring is going to get even better when our new dinosaurs arrive at Audubon’s Dinosaur Adventure! We’ll have 6 new dinosaurs when the exhibit re-opens on Wednesday, February 8th. Take the family back to pre-historic times through the walking exhibit and see how you would have sized up to the gigantic creatures. Another great outdoor activity for you to explore is over at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas.  I know you’re thinking but isn’t that indoor? Yes it is, but our newest exhibit at the Aquarium is Parakeet Pointe and it’s out on the second floor balcony. Go indoors to get out and feed the parakeets. The exhibit is a whirl wind of fun for kids and adults to get up close to the colorful birds. Then head over to watch the penguins slip, slide and glide in the water. I bet you could just watch these guys play for hours. Our penguin Endymion who was born at the Aquarium has a birthday coming up on February 21st so make sure to wish him a happy one! Our beloved ole nutria T-Boy has never been wrong on a prediction and this year we have to agree that there will be no more winter. Let’s gear up and get outdoor to have some good family fun with Audubon.
