"This is our way of joining this annual celebration of moms," said Bill Gersonde, Director of the Abilene Zoo "It's also a great opportunity to see some of our zoo moms like Rosita the maned wolf and our prairie dogs who just had pups. Zoo guests might also spot some ducklings following their mom through the Wetlands of the Americas exhibit."
