Almost a month removed from Valentine's Day, the late-winter months are the prime breeding season for zoo animals at McLean County zoo.
The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington is hoping to have a successful breeding season. Superintendent Jay Tetzloff indicates they have had a lot of success in recent years with their breeding pairs and are optimistic for more of the same this year.
Tetzloff gets hesitant to announce any animal pregnancies because anything can happen during the time they become pregnant and when the babies are born. He feels it is best to make sure any new lives are in good health before they make any announcements and subsequent public introductions.
