The Memphis Zoo brought some special guests Thursday to the facility’s newest exhibit: the Zambezi River Hippo Camp.
Residents of the soon-to-be-opened senior care facility The Farms at Bailey Station visited the zoo. They received a special tour “behind the scenes tour,” led by Doctor Chuck Brady, president and CEO of the Memphis Zoo.
“We just wanted to do something a little bit different, because the people we attract at our retirement communities are vibrant, active people,” said Mary Krantz with Greystone Communities.
The Zambezi River Hippo Camp opened last spring. And a new baby hippo was just born at the zoo!
