Ice Age on Ice is coming to Hamilton in May and Sid the Sloth is swinging by early. We're pretty excited to have Sid visiting us here at the zoo from 12.15-1pm. If you’re an Ice Age fan, make sure you're here to say hi!

For your chance to win a double pass to the show at Claudelands Event Centre AND a double pass to Hamilton Zoo, make sure you follow the Hamilton Zoo Facebook page.
