ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Saturday went to the Pachyderms at the BioPark Zoo.

Pachyderms include elephants, rhinos and hippos.

The event featured many hands-on stations teaching people about the history and diet of some of the BioPark’s largest animals.

Zookeepers were also on-hand for live demonstrations, telling people how they can do their part.

They posted some of their advice for the BioPark’s Facebook page. 

The Zoo has a list of items you can buy for the Pachyderms on Amazon, including supplies for enrichment and supplies keep them cool in the heat. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
