Zoo Atlanta says
Entertain your inner wild thing in the wacky world of animal enrichment! Watch your favorite Zoo animals investigate the most colorful treats of the year, sniff out their favorite scents, and solve challenging puzzles, and try a few activities yourself at stations throughout the Zoo.

An annual fall favorite, Play the Animal Way is a Zoo-wide showcase of the creative talents behind the novel objects, smells, sounds and activities that keep animals active, interested and engaged year-round. Species throughout the Zoo will receive exciting treats and surprises while human guests enjoy special keeper talks and training demos, crafts, kids’ games and live music.
