Two animals new to our zoo are Scout, the Eastern Screech Owl, and Ivy, the mink. Scout came to us from the Montana Raptor Conservation Center in Bozeman. His left eye was damaged, so their staff was concerned that he would not be able to hunt to survive in the wild. Ivy the mink came to us as a baby and is being trained to be an animal ambassador for the zoo. She is 3 months old (July). Her habitat has a water slide for her to play in. See both of our newest animals in the Nature Center as you start your tour of the ZooMontana grounds.
