TULSA, Okla. (AP) - Elephants at the Tulsa Zoo are getting a big egg hunt that is all their own.

The zoo’s resident elephants, Gunda, Sooky and Sneezy, will get to hunt for huge papier-mache eggs on Friday. The event is part of their “egg-citing” enrichment. Media and guests are invited to watch the event at 11 a.m.

The zoo is hatching more fun as it continues to prepare for the zoo’s dinosaur exhibit, Zoorassic Park. Opening May 3, guests can now purchase tickets at the zoo in the General Information Office.

The temporary exhibit features 15 animatronic dinosaurs, including 11 different species. Featured dinosaur species include the 40-foot long Tyrannosaurus Rex, a top-level predator, and the Brachiosaurus, a dinosaur with a long neck who may have consumed 400 lbs of food a day.
