The animals at the Little Rock Zoo love the holidays just as much as us! And you can celebrate with them at Holidays in the Wild on Dec. 16.

Santa will pay a visit to the zoo, enjoy a couple meals and take photos with guests on this special day where he'll also give gifts to various animals.

Tickets are now on sale for seatings at breakfast or lunch at Café Africa.

Both meals will feature a buffet, Kris Kringle hearing the wish lists of the children who visit with him, photo opportunities, craft time, visits from animal ambassadors and enrichment time when Santa will deliver presents to zoo animals.

"Holidays is the Wild is an event that people of all ages enjoy," Zoo Director Susan Altrui said in a news release. "We find that the public really likes seeing our animals get presents from Santa, and the animals sure enjoy receiving additional enrichment gifts!"

Tickets are available online or at the zoo's front gate. For adults, tickets are $12.95 for members and $22.95 for non-members. For children ages 3-12, tickets are $9.95 for members and $19.95 for non-members.
