Zoo guts, One of Kind, ET Created, Awesome!!

Image Description

Step inside a 18-foot tall polar bear and touch its organs. Examine what a leatherback turtle had for breakfast, or crawl inside a giant coho salmon.

Zoo Guts is all about exploring species at risk– from the inside out. It’s completely hands-on and totally unique!

Book Zoo Guts for a day at your school, or as part of your event, exhibit or science installation. It teaches about endangered species and their recovery by means of hands-on biology lessons. Best of all, it’s TONS of FUN!

WOW factor

Zoo Guts’ giant inflatable animals command centre stage at any event. They’re HUGE animals that can fit teams of 10 to 15 students at a time to assemble their heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, brain, intestines, and stomach, to name a few. Each animal comes with an internal map guiding students through the assembly of each unique skeletal, circulatory, nervous, digestive, muscular and respiratory system.

How it works

Five Giant inflatable animals surround the ‘Gut Hut’, occupying a total of 4200 square feet. Children assemble into teams and learn about their assigned animal’s tissues, organs and habits. With the help of clue cards, half of each team enters the Gut Hut (a bouncy castle) and locates the correct inflatable organs—one piece at a time. Children pass each organ to teammates who attempt to correctly place them inside the animal. The first team to restore their animal’s innards wins!
Other activities follow: Floor puzzles, Run Rabbit Run, and more.

Why Zoo Guts?

These Canadian animals are endangered, so the time to take action is NOW! As children explore these giant creatures, they learn concepts related to human impacts on the environment, habitat conservation, anatomy, biology and environmental science.

We offer custom-designed, free proposals. Call us at 1 866.702.5552 or email us today.

I just wanted to say that the community LOVED the body zorbs and science show we had at the Dwight Winter Carnival.  Even now a month after the carnival I’m still hearing about how great it was, particularly the body zorbs, some of the adults said it was the most fun they have had in years.  We really are thankful that you contacted us initially.

Again, many thanks for the great work from the “Elephant Thoughts” team!
