Stork Seeks Shelter from Hurricane Matthew in Men's Bathroom
The zoo’s Facebook page noted: “No species discrimination in this bathroom!”
General curator Genny Anderson told InsideEdition.com the stork isn’t the center's only animal waiting out the Category 3 storm.
“All of the animals at the zoo are all in different hurricane buildings,” said Anderson. “We actually have another male stork in the women’s bathroom.”
According to Anderson, the two storks don’t have a reliable food source and aren’t small enough to fit into a tight crate for 48 hours.
“Birds have high metabolisms,” said Anderson. “We made sure that they have enough room, food and water to ride out the storm.”
