Our eagle exhibit is officially sponsored by The University of Southern Mississippi and today we thought we would share a few facts about our eagles!
We currently have two male GOLDEN EAGLES, Nugget and Talon, on exhibit right at the front entrance of the zoo! In this photo, Laura is showing how our animal care staff holds them comfortably during their journey to have their talons, beak, and weight examined. Golden Eagles are monogamous and may remain with their mates for several years or for life! Since Nugget and Talon were both injured in the wild, they are now kept safely here with us!
