If breakfast is the most important meal of the day for humans, then surely tortoises must need nutritional support too.

The Phoenix Zoo breakfast adventure is a “shell-abration” of all things tortoise! 

Each month, the zoo features a different animal that children 3-5 years old can learn about and feed as well.

In September, through hands-on activities and exploration, kiddos will learn all about tortoises – shells, lifespan, eggs, habitats and much, much more! 

After enjoying breakfast and a few activities, zoo-goers enjoy a unique experience as they visit and feed the Galápagos Tortoises their breakfast in their exhibit!
