The Zoo animals want to visit your neighborhood! Join our animal scavenger hunt by printing an image of one of our animals and displaying it in your window or front door. Take the family on a neighborhood adventure to see which animals you can find, and remember to continue following all local safety guidelines.
To print off a photo, choose an animal by clicking on its image. You can then download the image and open it from your files to print, or print the whole window within your browser.
After finding an animal, encourage your children to answer the questions below to learn more about its species.
1: What colors does this animal have? What else do you know that is that color?
2: Have you ever seen an animal that looks like that one? What animal was it? What was the same? What is different?
3: How would you classify this animal? Is it a reptile, bird, or mammal?
4: What unique qualities (adaptations) does this animal have? How might that help them?
5: What do you think that animal would eat? Is it a carnivore, omnivore, or herbivore? Is it a predator or prey?
6: Do you think this animal lives in Indiana? Where do you think it would live?
