BROOKFIELD ZOO | National Popcorn Day Celebrated at Brookfield Zoo



A FUN & UNIQUE WAY TO CELEBRATE NATIONAL POPCORN DAY

BROOKFIELD–On National Popcorn Day (January 19), and as in previous years, in celebration of the event, the western lowland gorillas at Brookfield Zoo were treated to the low-fat snack food.



The air-popped popcorn rained upon the gorillas from timed feeders that are located in their habitat at Tropic World: Africa. The feeders, which are part of the zoo’s enrichment program, allow various food items, including popcorn, to be released at random times during the day, encouraging the animals to forage for food.



Also, joining in the celebration this year were the zoo’s lowland tapirs, Sonny and Sorghum (pronounced soar-gum), who seemed to enjoy the tasty treat. And, the zoo’s Polish chicken named Imelda (pronounced eye-melda) foraged through her supply of popcorn to get at some yummy mealworms.





According to several websites, the United States is the top country of popcorn consumption.
