Did You Know?
Meerkats eat almost anything. They love bugs, watermelon, cat food treats, bones, and frozen fruit.
Even scavengers that hiss at your dog and root through your trash deserve to be loved. Just watch out for those 52 pointy teeth (that's more than any other land mammal!).
Fun facts about the opossum:
The opossum is just one of several education animals at the zoo that are native to Michigan. Not only can you learn about exotic animals at Potter Park, you can also view and learn all about animals found in your own backyard and in the forests and wetlands across our great state.
