Facebook Fan Night is back! This special behind-the-scenes event was so popular last year that we’re doing it again.
After closing for the day on Thursday, May 24, we’ll re-open our gates for Facebook Fan Night, which will let our social media followers have the Zoo to themselves for a few hours.
The evening includes behind-the-scenes visits with our tigers and giraffes, and in the PPG Aquarium where you will get a unique opportunity to see sting rays, sharks, and other ocean creatures up close and personal from the top of the large ocean tank. Then enjoy a special encounter with one of our miniature Mediterranean donkeys.
Don’t forget to bring your camera so you can catch a lasting memory with our shark or polar bear mascot!

Will I get to pet the giraffe?
Maybe. For Facebook Fan Night, our giraffes, Mel and Sox, come up to an area where they can walk around, munch on leaves, and bend down to be petted by visitors if they choose. In general, Mel really loves attention from people, but we can’t guarantee that he’ll let you pet him.
