Groundhog/Hedgehog Day
With the passing of the Tennessee Aquarium’s Chattanooga Chuck in November, there won’t be a local groundhog popping out to check for its shadow Sunday, Feb. 2. However, Luna, a hedgehog at the Chattanooga Zoo, is ready to step into that role on Groundhog Day which is also Hedgehog Day. Throughout Sunday, zoo staff will share historical information with visitors about hedgehogs’ use as early weather forecasters. Although Luna will be out for meet-and-greets, don’t try to give her a hedge-hug
because she’s a “little prickly.” For more info: 423-697-1322.
