From the Amarillo Zoo:

Amarillo summers are hot, but the Amarillo Zoo will be a cool place to be on Saturday, August 9th from 1 to 3 p.m. Check out how the animals beat the heat. Zoo staff will be giving the animals tasty chilled treats to cool down in the midday heat. The bobcats will enjoy frozen blood pops while the black bears will cherish blocks of ice filled with fresh berries. Lemurs and monkeys will be treated to chilled jello treats filled with tasty goodies that will encourage them to lick and nibble to free the tidbits hidden inside.

Admission – Free with general admission to the Zoo
