Atoms Take a Walk on the Wild Side at Utica Zoo

Utica Academy of Science elementary school’s 1st-grade students take a walk on the wild side when visiting the Utica Zoo for a field trip.

Tuesday, June 7th, 2022Utica Academy of Science elementary school's 1st-grade Atoms have all the zoo vibes when they take a walk on the wild side while exploring the Utica Zoo for a field trip.

From Lions to Bactrian Camels to Spider monkeys, to beavers and everything in between, students learned about animals worldwide. The Utica Zoo is home to over 200 animals representing 99 species, with the main exhibit collection having over 140 individual animals representing 64 species.

Some fun facts the Atoms learned include that Bactrian Camels Najla and Furlow can drink 30 gallons of water in only 13 minutes! As well as the African Lions Donovan, Corky, and Murphy's roar could be heard as far as 5 miles away, and lions are the most social of the big cats! Their lion prides can have up to 30 individuals.

Thank you, Utica Zoo for such a ‘Zoo’per experience! Please click here to visit our Facebook page to view additional pictures from Utica Academy of Science elementary school’s 1st-grade field trip to the Utica Zoo.
