Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Camels, pandas, and otters were among the honored guests at a ZOOlebration tonight.

The second annual opportunity to party with the animals is the Red River Zoo's biggest fundraiser.

The zoo is a nonprofit organization.

Guests had a chance to feed the camels, have their picture taken with a porcupine, and get a sneak peek at the zoo's newest exhibit.

Lisa Tate – Executive Director: “So many people in Fargo don't realize the gem they have in their own backyard. So we wanted to showcase the zoo. Also we have a very special treat this year. We have a new river otter exhibit that we're doing a sneak peek tonight.

The zoo opened in Fargo 14 years ago, and has grown considerably in recent years.
