Send Brookfield Zoo Your Drawings of Brutus & Titus


African male lions Brutus and Titus arrived at Brookfield Zoo in March from Utah’s Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City. Although they have been acclimating to their new surroundings, they've unfortunately not been able to meet all of our guests due to the current health situation.

After seeing Brutus and Titus on one of the zoo’s weekday Facebook Live chats, many of our younger guests and fans starting sending in drawings of the four-year-old brothers. We decided that since people can't visit with Brutus and Titus right now, we'd bring the drawings to them so they know how excited everyone is to eventually meet them. 


While Brutus was certainly intrigued, it was Titus who came over to get a closer look and admire the colors and craftsmanship.

We figured since the lions liked the drawings so much, we want to fill the entire window with artwork!


Please send your drawings and messages for Brutus and Titus via our Facebook page. We'll print them out and post them to the window. So while you might not be able to visit the zoo at this moment, you can share your excitement with the African lions about seeing them very soon.

In the meantime, be sure you're keeping up on everything going on at our Bringing The Zoo To You page. There you'll find weekly activity sheets for kids and families as well as access to every "Bringing the Zoo to You" video chat we've done so far. And be sure to tune in for Bringing The Zoo To You live chats every weekday at 11:00 a.m. Central on our Facebook page and every Tuesday & Thursday at 2:00 p.m. Central on our Instagram profile
