A "Tail" about Training


In less than a month, Tulsa Zoo guests will get to see our California sea lions from many different vantage points. You'll even get to see special Sea Lion presentations, featuring several impressive behaviors. 

Trained behaviors are what some people may call "tricks," but there is no trickery in animal training! The behaviors are fun to watch, and they also allow our Keepers to perform essential health checks. In today's video, Marcie explains the how and why of training.
