Grossology Day

July 14

Turning “eww” into “wow!” on Grossology Day  

10 a.m. – 3 p.m.  

Find out the scoop on animal poop, the details of disgusting diets, and more during our third annual Grossology Day at Zoo Atlanta!

We will be exploring the purpose of animal behaviors that many think of as gross, but that help animals to survive and fulfill their roles in the ecosystem. As you explore the Zoo, check out activity stations, games, and more as we celebrate some of the less appreciated aspects of nature. 

During Grossology Day you can:

  • Discover the amazing uses of poop in the animal kingdom.
  • Investigate bird diets through owl pellet dissection demos and scavenging like a vulture.
  • Meet ambassador animals and find a new appreciation for some of our favorite (and not so favorite) animals.
  • Enjoy a Grossology Day-themed Animal Tales: An Interactive Storybook Reading
  • …and more!

Activities are free for Zoo Atlanta Members and children under 3; free with general admission.
