He was Staff Member Vern’s favorite animal here and since Vern builds the enclosures, Banjo has one of the biggest. Banjo was also a favorite of tour guests. His unusual appearance and even more unusual scent of popcorn amazes the crowd. Even though Banjo has an enormous enclosure, he always hangs out in the same old corner, where he has the best view down the paths so he can keep an eye out for volunteers bringing him his favorite treats.

    We got to see this cute little guy when we were there in August. He was such a neat little fella!
