North American River Otters have to be taught how to swim by their mothers. Zoo officials wanted to make sure the pups were safe around the water in Otter Creek before leaving them on exhibit for long periods of time. The pups have learned enough to be safe on exhibit. Visitors can now watch them as they continue to learn to swim!

The pups will be out in the exhibit with their mothers from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. daily.

The Otter Creek exhibit is sponsored by Buffalo Exterminating.

LineUp Annoucement for BuffaLoveFest 2014

The Buffalo Zoo has announced the lineup for their second annual BuffaLoveFest, an event featuring all things “Buffalo.”

The inaugural BuffaLoveFest in 2013 was such a success that Zoo officials have decided to make the event bigger and better in 2014.

“We had a lot more people attend last year than we expected” said Katie Jordan, the Zoo’s Senior Events Coordinator. “To accommodate a larger crowd, this year’s event will have  more than double the amount of food trucks we had last year.”

Other additions include an exclusive beer from Flying Bison, a slow-motion photo booth, Buffalo celebrity photo-op and autograph table, and more!

One thing that won’t change at this year’s BuffaLoveFest will be a performance by the BuffaLoveBirds All Star Band, featuring Lance Diamond. Other performers include local favorites The Steam Donkeys, Whiskey Reverb, and DJ sets by SpookyBusiness and Camaican Sensation.

In addition to Buffalonians’ favorite bands and food trucks, the event will include a Buffalo trivia tournament, and a variety of Buffalo-centric vendors including local artisans, t-shirt printers, jewelers, and more!

BuffaLoveFest will take place on Friday, May 30, 2014 from 5:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m. at the Buffalo Zoo. The event is limited to ages 21 and up. Tickets cost $20 in advance and $30 at the door, and include 2 drink tickets. Click here to order tickets to BuffaLoveFest 2014.

BuffaLoveFest is presented by Mutual of Omaha and 2 Find Your Home.

The Buffalo Zoo's latest addition, an ocelot kitten, is now on exhibit in M&T Bank Rainforest Falls. The kitten was born to first time parents Pedro and Ayla on December 10, 2013. Keepers in the exhibit named the spunky little girl "Arieta." They report that she is a fast learner and very active in the exhibit. Arieta and her mother Ayla are on exhibit daily from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. in M&T Bank Rainforest Falls. Come on down to the Zoo and meet the family.

They are an ocelot of fun.
