Go Bananas Day typically shines the spotlight on the Chattanooga Zoo's primate inhabitants with special treats and enrichment activities scheduled from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM.  This year the usual activities will be enhanced with the grand opening of the newest exhibit of the zoo.  Forests of the World is a new habitat housing some amazing reptiles.  In addition to Komodo Dragons and Chinese Alligators the new exhibit will house the Chattanooga Zoo's first venomous snakes.  The Forests of the World also house animals that can be found in forests such as the slowly moving sloth.
