Amarillo Zoo will have a never before seen exhibit April 1

The Amarillo Zoo will have a never before seen exhibit featuring an 8-foot creature the evening of April 1.

The scientific community has been rocked by the discovery of the creature, and through a national lottery the Amarillo Zoo was chosen to be the first to present him Tuesday, April 1.

Zoo officials say the creature was found somewhere in the Northwest Pacific region of the United States.

Scientists believe the primate lived in wilderness areas of Southeast Asia, weighing over 1,000 pounds and standing more than 8-feet tall.

The evidence of the creature has been in speculation for many years, but April 1 the Amarillo Zoo hopes spectators will get a first hand glimpse of the animal.

General admission will apply. Other zoo animals will be on exhibit, weather permitting.

Zoo concessions stands will be open.

The Amarillo Zoo is located at NE 24th Ave. and Dumas Hwy. inside Thompson Park.
