FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo is officially open for the 53rd season.

Zoo staff said it was a great turn out as guests came out for a wild adventure. This year the zoo features some new friends including two baby giraffes, a red panda, a sitatunga, Canadian lynx, and an African black footed penguin.

The zoo is northeast Indiana's largest tourist attraction. Visitors said it was the perfect day for a family outing.

"It's a lot of fun to see the animals out, and they're excited and real active because they've been cooped up, and they want to get outside, so it's a lot of fun," said Ross Bowman.

"I'm loving every bit about it. I love the Fort Wayne Zoo. We're season ticket holders. We come several times during the year, enjoy the animals," said Rick Baughman.

The zoo will be opened daily from 9 to 5. Extended hours start Memorial Day weekend.
