Parenting may sometimes feel like zookeeping, but this Fatherís Day, let Dad see what parenting real animals is all about! Admission for fathers is free on Sunday at both Franklin Park Zoo and Stone Zoo, where families can visit with all kinds of creatures and celebrate the job that all dads do. As it is with humans, fatherhood is an important role for many wild animals. At Franklin Park, you can see proud fathers and their little ones, including gorilla Kit and his three daughters, and, at the Stone Zoo, you can see what white-cheeked gibbon Kien Nahn and his eight-month-old offspring, Paddy, are up to!
