Mass Appeal

(Mass Appeal) – The Zoo in Forest Park came to studio 1A to introduce us to a new animal that they are naming after our Danny New. Brooke Johnson and Emily Bouwer brought in Danny New the dagus and a partridge – in honor of the holiday season, of course.

According to Bouwer, the dagus is in the rodent family and from South America. They are squirrelly and fun – just like Danny.

Johnson was holding the chukar partridge, which was friendly and loved being around people. The Zoo in Forest Park is currently closed for the winter, but will open up in the spring. You can learn more about them online at
